We are delighted to work with ‘My Legacy’ which is a coalition of almost 80 Irish charities working together to promote the power of legacy giving. ‘My Legacy’ highlights the fact that leaving a gift in a Will to a charity is a simple and fulfilling experience that anyone can do. Ireland lags greatly behind the UK in what charities earn from legacies, with only 6% of income coming from legacies, compared to 40% in the UK.
‘Best Will in the World Week’ is organised by ‘My Legacy’ and takes place from October 20th to 24th 2014 and gives you the opportunity , for just €50, to have an initial consultation on making a Will. At this first consultation, we will explain the process to you, take your instructions and outline any further costs to you.
So don’t put it off any longer. Contact us today and let us help you protect the future of your loved ones. For more information on the charities involved in this initiative, visit www.bestwill.ie.

Sample charitable legacy:
I leave €__ to [name of charity] for it’s general purposes.
The receipt of the treasurer or other proper officer of the said charity shall be sufficient discharge to my executors in the payment of this legacy.
If at the date of my death, the said charity has ceased to exist or has amalgamated or become incorporated with another charity or has changed its name, then this legacy shall not fail, but my executors shall pay the legacy to such charitable organisation as they consider most nearly fulfils the object of that which I intended to benefit.
