Beaford Arts is a charity supported by Arts Council England and the Dartington North Devon Foundation. We are England’s longest running rural arts organisation and we welcome any support you can give to enable us to continue supporting community life across rural North Devon in partnership with our region-wide network of volunteers.
Our Friends make a regular contribution of £10 or more annually. As a thank you you’ll receive an annual report and be invited to special events.
Beaford Arts is always looking for local north Devon people to become our volunteer community partners, known as promoters, to enable us to bring professional rural touring artists to new communities across the north Devon Biosphere area. With our support, promoters run extraordinary events in their community spaces. If you would like to know more please contact Claire Ayres, our Communities Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another way to volunteer is to become involved in our Archive projects. If you would like to help, please contact Kathryn Burrell on email@example.com.
Financial support one very important way to contribute to Beaford Arts. You can supplement the support we receive from funders and partners, towards specific activities associated with the Beaford Archive or with Beaford Education. Your donation can be endowed so that the lump sum is invested to produce a regular return to fund your chosen project. This makes it easy to support Beaford Arts in the long term.
Sometimes, people would like to make a gift in their lifetime, but cannot because of current financial commitments or future financial responsibilities. Leaving a gift in your Will is a valuable and personal way to support Beaford Arts, and costs you absolutely nothing now. Beaford Arts’ charitable status means the full value of your legacy gift is received as the donation is exempt from tax. Additionally, any legacy left to us can reduce the inheritance tax liability on your estate.
You are not obliged to tell us that you have made provision in your Will. However, if you do, we can ensure that you receive appropriate thanks as a member of our pledgers group, the 1966 Society.
