More and more people are leaving gifts and legacies in their Will to charities. After remembering loved ones in their Wills, many people want to leave their mark on the world and are choosing to give a gift that will make a difference.
Leaving a legacy means that you will be changing the lives of brain injury survivors. Today and far into the future.
Every legacy, no matter how big or small, has a significant impact on our work. We are extremely grateful for whatever amount you can give.
Through your generosity, you will help us continue to expand and develop our specialist facilities for people with an acquired brain injury. Through your generosity, you will rebuild futures that may have been lost.
Why a gift in your Will is so important!
How to Leave a Gift in Your Will
There are two main types of gift you can leave:
- You can leave some, or all, of what’s left over after you make provision for your loved ones.
- You can leave a specific amount of money, or item of value.
Pecuniary Gift (a specific sum of money)If you decide to leave a gift of specific sum of money or item this is called a PECUNIARY GIFT. To leave a PECUNIARY GIFT in your Will, you can use the following suggested wording:
“I [NAME] give the sum of € ________, or I bequeath [SPECIFIED ITEM] to Acquired Brain Injury Ireland (Registered Charity No. 20046200),2nd Floor, Block A Century Court, 100 George's Street Upper, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, A96 R2V3 and I direct that the Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the said organisation shall be proper and sufficient discharge of the same.”
Residuary Gift (what resides of your estate)If you decide to leave a gift of all or what’s left of your estate, this is called a RESIDUARY GIFT.
To leave a RESIDUARY GIFT in your will, you can use the following wording:
“I [NAME] give to Acquired Brain Injury Ireland (Registered Charity No. 20046200), 2nd Floor, Block A Century Court, 100 George's Street Upper, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin, A96 R2V3, all (or a fraction) of the residue of my estate whatsoever and wheresoever, and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other officer for the time being of the said Organisation shall be a full and sufficient discharge of the same.”
