About Us

My Legacy was established in 2003 by a small group of Irish charities who knew at first hand the great impact a legacy gift can have on the work of a charity. They also realised that, unlike other countries, many Irish people do not make a will despite how important a life document it is. Since then, My Legacy has grown to an umbrella group of almost 60 Irish charities who work together to promote the great importance of making a will and to ask people to consider leaving a legacy gift to a favourite charity, once family and friends have been taken care of and all other important personal decisions have been made.

My Legacy is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors drawn from our member charities and our work is funded by annual membership fees. My Legacy provides unbiased, useful information to individuals, charities and solicitors about leaving legacies to charities. My Legacy does not solicit specific gifts or legacies for individual organisations.

Do you have a cause close to your heart?

If you are considering a legacy gift to a cause close to your heart, you can ask your favourite charity for information about how your gift can support their work in the future. Your continued support and dedication to a cause is so important to a charity and the people and issues they believe in.
