November is a good time to make your will and consider leaving a legacy gift to a cause you care about.
My Legacy was established in 2006 by a small group of Irish charities who knew at first hand the great impact a legacy gift can have on the work of a charity. They also realised that, unlike other countries, many Irish people do not make a will despite how important a life document it is. Since then, My Legacy has grown to 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.
November welcomes the annual Autumn awareness campaign, My Legacy Month, a good time to take that first step in writing your will by making an appointment with a solicitor. My Legacy is grateful for the support of hundreds of solicitor firms all around the country who can offer expert guidance and advice about making or amending a will at any time of the year.
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.
Once family and friends have been looked after and all other important personal decisions have been made, deciding to leave a legacy gift to a charity like the IMNDA is a wonderful way to support a favourite cause in the future. Large or small, every legacy is a generous gift of hope and trust for the future.
The IMNDA has gratefully received over half a million euros from gifts in people’s Will’s; an incredible amount of money which has made a huge impact to families dealing with MND.
Thank you for considering leaving a gift to the IMNDA.
