Leaving a gift in your will is a fantastic way to help expand Active Retirement Ireland’s work. Active Retirement Ireland (ARI) is a voluntary organisation for older people with a national membership of over 24,500 people and over 550 local associations. Leaving a gift in your will can make a big difference to lives of older people living in Ireland.

Have you already included Active Retirement in your will? Please contact us at the number above. We would like to thank you privately for your gift, even if you prefer no public recognition.

It is a very straightforward process and we can give you the information you need to make a decision that is right for you and also gives you peace of mind that your wishes will be honoured. For more information call us on 01 873 3836 to discuss your wishes in confidence.

Why make a will?

Making a Will is probably one of the most important things you can do to ensure your wishes will be carried out, exactly as you want. After you’ve taken care of your loved ones in your will, we’d be very grateful if you’d consider including a legacy to ARI.

Making a Will doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive and the satisfaction you’ll get from putting your affairs in order will be one of relief. Did you know, if you leave a gift to a charity in your Will, this will be tax free? This means that every cent of your money goes towards helping older people stay connected.

The four different legacy gifts you can make are:

A Pecuniary Gift

This is a gift of a specified amount of money.

A Specific Gift

This is a gift of a specific item such as property, jewellery, stocks, shares or other valuables.

A Residuary Gift

This is the remainder of your estate after all other gifts to family and friends have been distributed and all outgoings have been resolved.

A Reversionary Gift

This is a gift in which a named person has access to the estate, which only reverts to the charity on the death of that person. For instance, the will states that a friend is allowed to live in your house until their death, when it will revert to the charity.
