One of the most powerful ways someone can help Cancer Care West is to consider leaving a gift in their will.
You don’t need to be wealthy to make a difference to people affected by cancer, and whether it is a specific amount of money or a small percentage of your will, every gift will help us to continue our work.
Leaving a gift to Cancer Care West in your will is much easier and less expensive than you think. Legacies left to charities are tax free and are not subject to inheritance tax, so 100% of any gift you leave will go directly to Cancer Care West.
If you’re considering leaving a legacy to Cancer Care West, you should first ask your solicitor for advice. There are two types of legacies –
If you already have a will, it’s easy to amend it to include a gift to Cancer Care West. This change is called a “Codicil” and can be drawn up easily by your solicitor.
If you would like to find out more about leaving a gift in your Will to Cancer Care West, then please get in touch with our Chief Executive, Richard Flaherty, for an informal and no-obligation conversation by phone at 091 545000 or email to [email protected]. Alternatively, please feel free to drop into Inis Aoibhinn residence at University Hospital Galway to speak to someone in person.
After you have taken care of your family and friends please consider creating a lasting legacy by remembering Cancer Care West in your Will
