About Us

My Legacy was established in 2003 by a small group of Irish charities who saw first hand how a legacy today can improve the lives of others in the future. My Legacy now comprises almost 80 Irish charities who work together to promote legacy giving in Ireland.

My Legacy provides open, honest, unbiased advice and information for individuals, charities and solicitors about legacy giving. We do not solicit specific gifts or legacies for individual organisations.


Making A Will

Having a will is very important; so why not visit one of our participating solicitors to get professional advice & guidance about drawing up a will or updating an existing one.

It is a much more straightforward and affordable process than you might think.

Leaving a Legacy

If you are making or amending your will, you might consider leaving a gift to a favourite charity.

Your legacy will make a big difference to a cause you care about in the future.
