Would you consider leaving a gift in your will to support Ireland’s environment? An Taisce has been fortunate in receiving a number of gifts / bequests over the years from members and supporters. They have ranged from properties to sums of cash – large and small. We appreciate them all. Once you have looked after your loved ones, a gift in your will is a wonderful way to help protect and enhance the landscapes, nature and heritage buildings that so enrich our lives. There is a saying that “the best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.” You could choose to leave a percentage of your estate, a residue or a specific amount.

How?

Once you have provided for your loved ones, add one of these amendments (codicil) or similar to your will. You can also contact us to receive our legacy pack.
