This My Legacy Month, The Irish Hospice Foundation ask you to continue to support us by leaving a legacy gift in your will, after you have taken care of your family and loved ones. Large or small, it is a special and personal way to make an impact on causes you cherish most for the future.
We are part of My Legacy, an umbrella group of 65 Irish charities who work together to promote the great importance of making a will and to ask people to consider leaving a legacy gift to a favourite charity, once family and friends have been taken care of and all other important personal decisions have been made.
Many Irish people put off making a will even though it is not a daunting experience and can give you peace of mind. It is usually a much more straightforward and cost effective process than you might think; it will only take about an hour or so of your time. Your solicitor will discuss what is necessary for drawing up this important personal document when you make your appointment.
Three simple steps is all it takes to remember those you care about in your will:
Make an appointment with a solicitor.
Look after your loved ones first.
Consider a legacy to charity – your gift may be big or small and is tax free.
