When making a will, after you have provided for your loved ones, there are a number of different options that you can consider:

  • A financial gift
  • A gift of an asset you have eg jewellery, property, paintings
  • A gift of company shares

As a registered charity, your legacy to St. James’s Hospital will be exempt from inheritance tax.

 

We set out here some suggested wording against such gifts but we do encourage you to always consult with your solicitor, who will be able to advise you.

My Legacy Week 2018

This Legacy Week, St. James’s Hospital Foundation, asks you to continue to support us by leaving a 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 over 50 Irish charities who work together to highlight how important it is for everybody to have a will and to ask people to remember a charity they care about, once all other important 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.
