My Legacy Week 2018

My Legacy Week 2018

Posted on October 31, 2018

This year The Community Foundation for Ireland and 60 Irish charities are asking the public to consider leaving a legacy gift in their wills as part of My Legacy Week. 

My Legacy is an umbrella group of 60 Irish charities. Our group vision is to create social change; to increase the low level of will making in Ireland at every life stage and to make legacy gifts the  norm in Ireland and a widely recognised and respected way of supporting a charity into the future. A charitable legacy gift is tax free.

Here at The Community Foundation for Ireland we realise social change is not achieved overnight. While some societal issues can be solved quickly and with a once off injection of funds, most need persistent attention and sustained support over years. The Community Foundation for Ireland is here for the long-term. Through our innovative grant making we help address society’s problems and respond to opportunities. We seek to build stronger communities – today and for the decades to come. By connecting visionary donors with causes that truly matter, we can bring positive changes in communities throughout Ireland and overseas.

The Community Foundation for Ireland is ambitious for our country and its people. We want to support the most innovative and effective community groups and charities. To do so, we hope that more and more people will support of The Community Foundation for Ireland to make this possible. Sustainable solutions to society’s challenges often need independent funding to really make things happen. After your loved ones are taken care of, a gift in your will could help us to achieve that ambition.
