Leave a legacy

Family looking out at a sunset

Every year, we are privileged to have incredible people leave the gift of a legacy to Epilepsy Ireland in their will. These extraordinary gifts support the future of critical services we deliver that are needed by people living with epilepsy and their families; power the advocacy needed to secure healthcare and legislative change and fund the ground-breaking research that will change the lives of people with epilepsy in future.

Leaving a gift in your will means that you can contribute to the work of Epilepsy Ireland that costs you nothing in your lifetime but will mean everything to someone with epilepsy in the future. You will have the benefit of being part of a special community of supporters, knowing that you will be changing many people’s lives and assisting us with our work towards a society where no person’s life is limited by epilepsy.

Each gift, whether big or small, will make a vital and cherished difference.

How you can include Epilepsy Ireland in your will?

  • Leave a specific sum, a pecuniary gift. Each such gift is a secure contribution to help achieve our vision of a world where no person’s life is limited by epilepsy.
  • Leave a share of your estate not promised to family or friends, a residuary gift. A gift like this can have a wonderful impact on innovative research, service delivery, and advocacy.
  • You may pledge a specific item from among your assets, such as property, shares, or jewellery, to Epilepsy Ireland.
  • To include Epilepsy Ireland in a will you have already written, you can add a codicil. This is a simple addition and becomes a permanent part of your will.

If you are considering leaving a gift in your will to Epilepsy Ireland, we are very grateful. Even if you are only at the very early stages of planning, we would be pleased to hear from you and answer any questions you may have.

If you choose to share your intentions with us, we can work closely with you to ensure your wishes are met, keep in touch with you about our work, and most importantly, we can thank you for your support.

If you would like to discuss Legacy giving and the prospect of a gift to Epilepsy Ireland without obligation, please contact our Fundraising & Development Manager Cian by emailing with your details and Cian will give you a call.
