Leave a Legacy

Leave a Legacy

If you would like to remember the Organic Centre in your will, there are three kinds of legacy you may leave.

  • Pecuniary – A pecuniary legacy is a specified sum of money, determined when the will or codicil is written.
  • Specific – A specific legacy is the bequest of a particular item of value. This can include stocks, shares, proceeds of a life assurance policy, property, etc.
  • Residuary – A residuary legacy is the gift of the residue of your estate, or a share of the residue after other bequests to your family and friends have been made and all debts, taxes and expenses have been paid.

If you already have a will, it is easy to amend it to include a gift to the Organic Centre. You can amend your existing will by completing a codicil, which your solicitor will help you draw up. Your solicitor or legal advisor may find the suggested wording below useful:

 

Pecuniary Legacy: “I give to the Organic Centre, Rossinver, Co. Leitrim, registered charity number CHY 11547, the sum of €… (in figures) and €….(in words) for the general purposes of the charity, and I direct that a receipt of the Treasurer or other duly authorised officer of the charity shall be sufficient discharge for my executors.”

 

Specific Legacy: “I give devise and bequeath to the Organic Centre, Rossinver, Co. Leitrim, registered charity number CHY 11547, my (description of property) for the general purposes of the charity, and I direct that a receipt of the Treasurer or other duly authorised officer of the charity shall be sufficient discharge for my executors.”

 

Residuary Legacy: “I give devise and bequeath all (or a share of) the residue of my estate to the Organic Centre, Rossinver, Co. Leitrim, registered charity number CHY 11547, for its general purposes and direct that the receipt(s) of the Treasurer or other duly authorised officer shall be sufficient discharge to my executors.”
