Support My Legacy Week for Age Action
This year Age Action and 60 Irish charities are asking the public to consider leaving a legacy gift in their wills.
When people choose to leave a legacy gift to Age Action they are supporting the many thousands of older people we help each year through our Information Helpline, our free small home repairs service, Getting Started computer training as well as the many education programmes our members and clients are involved in.
Many of our supporters have told us they intend to leave us a legacy gift; to help us continue our work in an uncertain world and we are extremely grateful for this kindness.
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.
Fergal O’Sullivan, Chairperson of My Legacy said “When you’re making your will, you will naturally look after your family and loved ones first. Once all other personal decisions have been made, you might want to acknowledge a cause you feel strongly about. This thoughtful support will have an impact in the future.”
