Legacies are an important source of income for Marymount University Hospice & Hospital. They provide us with essential funds that enable us to make long-term plans and ensure that the hospital and the hospice can continue its work.
A large percentage of Irish people fail to make a will. This can lead to complicated financial and legal problems for families in the aftermath of a loved one’s death. Making a will is often easier and less expensive than people imagine. A valid will ensures that family members are provided for and are protected from unnecessary stress.
By making a will and pledging a legacy to Marymount, you can help ensure that our work will continue to benefit terminally ill people and their families for generations to come.
Additionally, legacy donations to charities are tax free so leaving a gift to Marymount University Hospice & Hospital can help reduce the tax payable on your estate. Changing an existing will to include a legacy donation is quite straightforward. Ask your solicitor to draw up a “Codicil”. This addition / supplement explains, modifies, or revokes a will or part of one and generally they do not invoke a charge.
The choice to notify us is entirely up to you. However, we would hope that you would do so as it gives us the chance to thank you, and it allows us to plan for the future.
