Exploring common themes to understand new opportunities and challenges.

We work with groups of charities to research issues of common interest, enabling them to share costs, information and experiences. These are often rolling programmes which evolve over time, each year building on the findings of the year before.

Golden egg

Growing High Value Legacies

Helping charities secure transformational gifts from high net worth individuals.

New for 2024, this 6-month research programme aims to equip legacy fundraisers with the knowledge and confidence to build a high value legacy strategy. This will be evidence-based, yet practical aiming to give you tangible ways to implement the learnings immediately.


Digital Legacy Insights

Generating evidence, insight and discussion on the value of digital legacy fundraising

This rolling programme raises awareness of and helps charities gain a deeper understanding of a range of digital topics and issues affecting legacy fundraising.

For 2024 we will be shining a spotlight on the key issue of online wills.


In-Memory Insight

Collecting hard evidence on the size, shape and scope of in-memory giving in the UK.

We work closely with a learning circle of leading charities – over ninety in the past twelve years – who agree to pool their budgets, experiences and data together to help build evidence and insight.


Baby Boomer Research

Over the past 15 years Legacy Foresight has carried out extensive research in a mission to help charities get a deeper understanding of the baby boomer generation, assessing the opportunities and challenges they represent for legacies.

Our 2023 research updated our thinking on boomers and widened our understanding of Generation X, exploring the question of what legacy giving will look like beyond boomers.

Very worth while. The In-Memory Insight programme is engaging, insightful and always delivers the needed broader perspective for this field. Highly recommend. Ellie Beach, In Memory Officer Cats Protection
