A Gift That Lasts

Putting children first forever

Including a gift to Temple Street in your Will is a powerful way to make a positive difference to sick children in Ireland, far beyond your lifetime. It’s also a wonderful way to continue your support for a cause you feel truly passionately about.

The hospital is so grateful for every legacy gift that it receives. Legacy gifts allow us to plan for the future, ensuring that every sick child in Temple Street receives world-class medical care so they can be healthy, happy and free from pain.  Legacy gifts really are a lifeline.

Once you've looked after your family and loved ones you may think about leaving a gift to a worthy cause. The type and amount of your legacy gift is entirely up to you. There are a number of simple ways you can include Temple Street in your Will.

You can leave:

A Pecuniary Gift – a specific monetary gift

A Residuary Gift – the remainder of your estate after all other bequests to family and friends have been distributed and all outgoings have been resolved.

A Specific Gift - you can leave a specific item such as property, stocks, shares or other valuables.

A Reversionary Gift- a gift in which a named person has access to your estate. Upon their death, the estate reverts to the charity.

And if you’ve already made a Will and are considering changing it to include Temple Street all you need to do is speak to your solicitor about adding a codicil. A codicil is a legally binding document that details any changes that are made to a Will.

Remember, it’s always advisable to speak to a solicitor and explore your options before making a Will.

Temple Street is a proud member of My Legacy. To see a list of participating solicitors please visit www.mylegacy.ie

My Legacy is a successful joint initiative of various Irish charities which aims to raise public awareness of the importance of making a will and leaving charitable bequests in Wills through an on-going campaign.

The decision to give is a personal one, and as such, the choice to notify us is entirely yours. But we hope you will consider letting us know you have left a legacy to Temple Street, as it gives us the chance to thank you, and it allows us to plan for the future.
