If pets have a place in your heart, find a place for them in your will.

What is Legacy Giving?

You may have heard the term “legacy giving” or “bequest” but weren’t sure what it meant. It is quite simply planning to make a difference, both for you and for a charity or cause you really care about, through a charitable gift in your will. The goal of such gifts is to “leave a legacy” that can have a positive, or even transforming, impact when you are gone.

Once family and loved ones are looked after in your will, consider how you can help The Irish Blue Cross by leaving a legacy gift to help animals too. Your gift will support our work into the future, allowing your legacy and love for pets to live on.

Leaving a legacy gift or bequest in your will is a king and generous gesture. It can be large or small and is tax-free. Legacies make it possible for many charities to sustain their good work and they have played a significant role in allowing The Irish Blue Cross expand its small animal services in recent years.

How to leave a legacy gift in your will.

If you don’t already have a will in place, we recommend that you seek independent professional advice from a solicitor who will help you in the process of making one. If you already have a will in place, your solicitor can help you update it to include a legacy gift to The Irish Blue Cross. Your bequest to our charity will ensure that our essential charitable work can continue for decades to come in the many communities that need our support.

Many thousands of sick and needy pets receive our care each year. Every animal is cared for compassionately at The Irish Blue Cross clinics and our vets, nurses and volunteers are caring and understanding towards pets and owners alike. You can create your legacy by leaving a specific monetary amount, a gift, or part of your estate to The Irish Blue Cross.
