Legacies

Maybe you’ve not thought about a Will or what your legacy will be?
With TEAM HOPE we’ll ensure you leave a lasting impact in this world.

You may have recently received correspondence from TEAM HOPE or you may been thinking about leaving TEAM HOPE a legacy gift already. Below we offer some guidance on this type of donation.

TEAM HOPE’s work with children in poverty is year-round, as we work with many in-country partners supporting International Development Aid projects like Water; Sanitation; Education, Healthcare and Income-Generation. We couldn’t do this without the on-going generous support of donors like you. A legacy gift, for example, would go towards supporting Women/Girls coming out of being sex trafficked in Eastern Europe; relieve hunger for those affected by HIV/AIDS through income-generation in sub-Saharan Africa; or used by TEAM HOPE where the need is greatest at the time e.g. replanting crops after drought.

It’s always good to have a Will in place and should you like to leave a legacy to TEAM HOPE, below is the next simple step you can take, based on your circumstances:

  • If you have already made a Will with a Solicitor you can instruct them using this section as reference
  • If you have a Will, but prefer not to involve your Solicitor, you can complete the Codicil (this legally amends rather than replaces an existing Will – see specific Codicil guidance notes)
  • If you haven’t yet made a Will we can suggest www.makemywill.ie and we’ve also provided below

Should you decide to leave a legacy gift to TEAM HOPE, we thank you and we can assure you that it will make a lasting difference in this world.

If we can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact our office on 01-2940222.
