Leaving a legacy of hope

A life well lived, marked out by love for God and generosity towards others, will never be forgotten – by God or by those who have been blessed.
Leave a legacy to Global Missions Ireland and you enable life to go on even after you’re no longer here. Your will can be a last act of love to those you leave behind. In it, you can provide practically for those most significant in your life and ensure they hear your last words and wishes. And it mirrors Jesus: allowing new life to come even from death.

How to leave a legacy

According to a recent survey, 76 per cent of 25 to 44-year-olds haven’t made a will. If you die without a valid will, it can be an enormous stress to your family and lawyers will spend a lot of time – and your money – sorting out your affairs. It’s a recipe for heartache, disputes and discord – and probably isn’t how you’d like them to remember you. We recommend that you contact your solicitor who can advise you on the exact wording.
There are three different ways you could leave a legacy to Global Missions Ireland:
Make a pecuniary bequest
You state in your will that a specific sum of money will go to a particular charity, or charities of your choice.

Make a residuary bequest

You make provisions for your nearest and dearest first, then leave the remainder, or part of the remainder of your estate to one or more preferred charities.

Make a specific bequest

You can make a gift of a particular item that you own. In view of the complexity surrounding this sort of bequest, we’d be delighted to discuss it with you before your will is drawn up.
If you plan to leave a legacy it really helps if you let us know. This enables us to plan wisely for the future. It will of course be treated in confidence and is not legally binding.
