Ways To Help
Leave a Legacy
Leaving a legacy to Educate Together, for example money, objects, securities, bonds or property, is a wonderful way to help Educate Together to continue to provide choice within the Irish Education system and prepare our children for life in the 21st Century.
A legacy left to Educate Together is exempt from tax. By leaving a legacy to Educate Together you are reducing the overall tax bill on your estate and getting the most value from your gift.
All you need is Educate Together’s charity number which is CHY 11816. Your legal advisor will do the rest. You do not have to tell us whether you have considered Educate Together in your Will. If you are considering remembering us in your Will, or have already done so, thank you.
Making a will
If you already have a solicitor, the first step is to contact him or her directly.
If not, you’ll need to find a solicitor who will draw up a will for you. Drawing up wills is one of the basic services that almost all solicitors provide. You can use this link to the Law Society to help you find a solicitor in your area.
Changing your will
If you already have a will, you can easily make a change to include Educate Together. This is change is called a “Codicil” and can be drawn up easily by your solicitor.
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.
If you are making a residuary gift, the following text can be used in your will:
“I give to Educate Together of (insert Address of organisation), all (or a fraction) of the residue of my estate whatsoever and wheresoever, and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other officer for the time being of the said Organisation shall be a full and sufficient discharge of the same”.
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.
If you are making a gift of a fixed sum or specific item, the following text can be used in your will:
“I give the sum of €_______ or I bequeath (the item specified) to Educate Together of (insert address of organisation), and I direct that the Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the said Organisation shall be proper and sufficient discharge for the same”.
