Leave a Legacy
Leaving Foundation Nepal a gift in your will helps us to plan ahead and develop long-term programmes to end poverty in the most disadvantaged parts of Nepal.
After first thinking about the needs of family and friends, many people decide to make a donation in their will to a charity they believe is making a difference. Regardless of the size of donations, Foundation Nepal particularly appreciates legacy gifts because they enable us to plan long-term funding for specific projects.
Types of Legacy
These are the three different types of legacy most commonly left to charities through wills:
The residue of an estate, or a share of the residue, after other bequests to family and friends have been made and all debts, taxes and expenses have been paid
A specific sum of money that is determined when the will or codicil is written
A particular item of value that is bequeathed, for example jewellery, shares or property
If you already have a will, it’s easy to amend it to include a donation to Foundation Nepal. This is done by completing a codicil, which your solicitor can help you with. Your solicitor may wish to use the following sample wording:
1. For a gift of the residue of an estate:
"I give to Foundation Nepal of 3 New Road, Galway 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".
2. For a gift of a fixed sum or specific item:
"I give the sum of €_______ or I bequeath (the item specified)____________ to Foundation Nepal of 3 New Road, Galway 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".
