Richard-RadcliffeRichard Radcliffe

Richard Radcliffe, Fellow of the Institute of Fundraising, Yorkshireman and global legacy expert, has been passionate about legacies for many decades – ignited when he took over Smee & Ford 30 years ago. His fascination drove him to develop his consultancy which is focused on understanding the views of everyone involved: donors, volunteers, staff and charity beneficiaries. Richard has met tens of thousands of supporters and advised charities of every type around the globe. He has an unremitting yearning to dig deep into prospect motivations to make a Will and leave a legacy to ensure an individual’s long term happiness and great legacy income for charities. He has studied the Will-making and legacy-giving traditions of all the main religions, traditions and cultures.

Richard is passionate about sharing his expertise and creativity with non-profits, about challenging their thinking and helping generate substantial income for future years. Richard is a Fellow of the Institute of Fundraising and has been Chair of both the IoF Convention and the International Fundraising Congress.
