Support My Legacy Week for the IMNDA

This year the IMNDA joins together with over 50 other charities around Ireland to appeal to the public to leave a legacy gift, large or small, to charity in their will.

Gemma Watts, Fundraising manager for the IMNDA said “When people choose to leave a legacy donation to the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) they are supporting people living with Motor Neurone Disease right across Ireland. We are lucky to receive generous support from individuals and families who care about our cause but many people don’t know that they can ensure that our good work can continue, by leaving a legacy of kindness in their will.”

Fergal O’Sullivan, Chairperson of My Legacy said “First and foremost, when you’re making your will, look after your family and loved ones. After that, you might want to consider leaving a legacy gift to  a cause you feel strongly about or have an affinity with and you decide what that gift is. Large or small, a charity will appreciate your thoughtfulness and remembrance.”

About MyLegacy.ie

My Legacy was established in 2003 by a small group of Irish charities who knew the great impact a legacy gift can have on their work. They know that Irish people tend to put off making a will despite how important a life document it is and how easy it is to do. Since then, My Legacy has grown to an umbrella group of over 50 Irish charities asking people to consider leaving a legacy gift to a charity or cause they feel strongly about, after family and loved ones have been looked after and all other important personal decisions have been made. My Legacy provides unbiased, useful information to individuals, charities and solicitors about leaving legacy gifts to charities. My Legacy does not solicit specific gifts or legacies for individual organisations.
