Remember Us In Your Will

At Paragon, we believe that the arts have the power to transform lives. Our vision is a society free from barriers to engagement in music and dance, where everyone has the opportunity to reach their creative potential.

Did you know, 100% of Paragon’s funding is short-term, i.e. for less than 5 years?

For more than a generation, Paragon has been helping to transform lives through music and dance. By leaving a gift in your Will, you can ensure Paragon’s sustainability for generations to come. Any donation, large or small, will make a substantial difference and will be invested in our inclusive arts activities that improve confidence, wellbeing and future prospects in nurturing and supportive environments.

As a charity, our work relies on donations - from delivering fun and inclusive group workshops, to supporting individuals to achieve their personal and professional goals. By writing a Will, you can ensure the things you value most continue to be cared for after you are gone. Once you have looked after family and friends, please consider remembering Paragon in your Will.

Q. Is this just for the wealthy?

A. No. You do not need to own a property to leave a gift in a Will, nor do you need to have savings or an investment portfolio. You can leave a specific sum of any size, a specific item (e.g. a musical instrument) or a share in your estate (if you have one).

Q. Why do I need a Will?
