How To Leave A Bequest To Amnesty International
Leaving a bequest to Amnesty International isn’t complicated and needn’t be expensive. Legacy donations are made to the Amnesty International Foundation who support Amnesty International Irish Section in human rights work that furthers the aims of the Foundation.
Whether you already have a will or not, here’s a brief outline of what needs to be done to include us in your wishes.
1. IF YOU DON’T YET HAVE A WILL
You have three choices of bequest you may like to make:
• Leaving Amnesty the residue of your estate (anything left over after you’ve met your personal commitments).
• Leaving Amnesty a percentage of your estate.
• Leaving Amnesty a specific amount.
2. IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A WILL
You can easily update it with a codicil – an additional clause that includes your bequest, and complies with all the requirements of a valid will.
We recommend that whether you’re thinking of making a new will, or updating an existing one, you consult a solicitor. They will make sure your will is valid and that your intentions are clearly and legally stated.
