What we do

Legacy professionals in the UK are responsible for over £2.8bn of charitable income every year – money left to charities in people’s wills. This is income that many charities are reliant upon to continue the excellent work that they do.

The Institute of Legacy Management provides those working within the legacy sector with a network of support and dedicated training services. We represent and support hundreds of charities, not-for-profit organisations and associated professions.

Ultimately ILM seeks to ensure that every donor’s gift to charity achieves its greatest potential.

We are proud to:

* Act as a crucial network uniting legacy professionals across the UK

* Provide dedicated training services to maintain and improve practices across the profession

* Work with probate professionals and other service providers to improve and strengthen the legacy management process from start to finish

* Maintain and deliver information about the legacy management profession to the wider community

* Help define and share the highest professional standards for legacy management

Our partners

We work very closely with the legal profession and partner with many law firms to help offer insight and support to our members, as well as giving the legal profession an invaluable insight into the charity legacy market.

Making the switch from law to legacies

Many of our members started their careers in the legal profession but decided to make the switch to charities so they could use their skills to help charitable organisations maximise legacy income. Working within the legacy sector is an extremely rewarding career and we often advertise legacy roles with a range of charities on the dedicated jobs page on our website.

In order to support those who are embarking on a career within legacy management, ILM offers a wide range of training opportunities, as well as a nationally accredited legacy qualification known as CiCLA, or the Certificate in Charity Legacy Administration. You can find out much more on our website.
