McClure Solicitors partner with the
Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture
Multi Award winning McClure Solicitors are delighted to be partnered with the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture. We see this as an opportunity to increase our support of the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture to raise valuable funds, and allow us to engage with the supporters of the charity to let them know that McClure's purpose is Making families feel secure.
McClure Solicitors has been providing well informed advice since 1853. Today we specialise in Asset Protection, Estate Planning and Inheritance Tax Planning, helping clients to protect their assets and pass them on efficiently to their family.
McClure offers a full range of services but our most popular service is a Free Will for Charity. All we ask "Just consider a donation to the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture".
This generates around 700 new clients per month - and 50% go on to use us for other services. This has allowed us to grow from a small provincial business to a national brand with offices throughout the UK.
Andrew Robertson, Managing Director of McClure Solicitors said:
“Everyone benefits. You get the Will or Will review you need while the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture gets much needed funds. And if you like the McClure service, you might use us for other work in the future. Over 160 charities now trust us to provide our Estate Planning services for their clients. If they can trust us, so can you.”
"The Royal Scottish Academy of Art & Architecture is an independent Scottish Charity which receives no funding from national or local government. Founded in 1826 we are an Academy of prominent artists and architects whom administer opportunities for Scotland’s creative community through our exhibitions, travel awards, scholarships and residencies. We support educational development with school children through our RSA Schools Art Competition and undergraduate students in Scotland through a lecture and engagements programmes. This also includes presenting 60 new graduates at the acclaimed RSA New Contemporaries exhibition at the RSA galleries in Spring each year.
In addition, we work within the healthcare sector, partnering with the art collections of Edinburgh and Lothian Health Foundation and Orkney NHS Trust. Our collection of Scottish Art is Recognised by the Scottish Government as a Collection of National Significance and we collect, conserve, exhibit and develop these important archives for the people of Scotland.
With no regular funding, all of this work is achieved by the receipt of donations, legacies and bequests to enable these interesting and valued activities to happen. As we approach our 200th anniversary in 2026 we continue to provide and expand upon these achievements - developing further opportunities for creative practice in Scotland. The results of our work are encountered and enjoyed by a huge range of visitors, participants, partners and creatives across our entire nation.
Bequests provide us with the means to secure sometimes very small, but crucial, projects such as conservation of historic objects or paintings. Legacies and living legacies are instrumental in our being able to engage with the artists and wider public in Scotland to make a difference for support and enjoyment.
Bequests and legacies ensure that our work continues and we promote these opportunities, and those providing them, through our exhibitions, publications, website and media platforms.
We thank McClure Solicitors for their partnership and diligence in this area, working with us to assist secure these initiatives for future generations." Colin R Greenslade, Director, Royal Scottish Academy of Art & Architecture.
Our total fundraising for charity in 2018 was over £47 million, and we are currently on target to reach at least £60 million by the end of 2019!
