The Institute of Welsh Affairs was established over 30 years ago and during that time we have made an important contribution to Welsh life as an independent, well-managed and deep-rooted organisation. However, our work will take many years to complete, and sustaining the work of the IWA will not become any easier in the difficult economic times ahead.

As one of the few bodies in Welsh public life who do not receive funding from the Welsh Government or any political party, we are well placed to make sure that innovative ideas from across the political spectrum are brought to the fore. As a charity, we are wholly dependent on the generosity of our members and funders for enabling us to exist.

If you value our role in helping to strengthen civil society in Wales, you may wish to consider making a gift through your will to ensure that we can continue to build on these foundations for the sake of future generations of Welsh citizens.

Whether large or small, a gift of this kind will have an important, practical impact on our work. It is also a way of extending the impact of your own generosity beyond your lifetime.

If you would like to leave a gift or legacy to the Institute of Welsh Affairs, this can be arranged with the person writing your will. They will need our charity number: 1078435.

We would be pleased to help you, should you wish to discuss options with our staff. But if you have already decided to make a bequest to the IWA in your will, please let us know, so that we can express our thanks to you in your own lifetime.

If you would like to discuss leaving a gift in your will, or any other way of supporting the IWA, please contact Rhian Cook on 029 2048 4387.
