Leave A Lasting Gift

For many people, SVP holds a special place in their heart. Please consider making a gift in your Will, so your kindness can live on even after you’re gone.

4 Simple Steps:

1: Know the value of your Estate

2: Identify who and causes you would like to include in your Will.

3: Decide who you would like to appoint as Executor to your Will

4: Arrange an appointment with a solicitor, or make your Will online

If you wish to amend an existing Will so that you can make a gift to The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, you can use the following suggested wording to make  the change.

"I give to The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, SVP House, 91/92 Sean McDermott Street, Dublin 1, registered charity No. CHY 6892: The sum of € (Amount in figures and in words) or (a specific item) or all my property known as (name of property) and situated at (location of property) or All (or a share of) the residue of my estate. I direct that (i) my bequest be applied by The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul or it's charitable purposes and (ii) the receipt of any Trustee of The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul for the time being shall be sufficient discharge to my Executors."

“I give to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of (insert local address of SVP here) all (or a % of) the residue of my estate whatsoever and whose so ever, and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer, or other officer, for the time being of the said Organisation shall be a full and sufficient discharge of the same.”

Or, you may decide to leave a set amount of money, or a specific gift item, to SVP in your will. This type of bequest is called a pecuniary bequest. The words you need to add to your will if you wish to leave a pecuniary bequest to SVP in your will are as follows:

“I give the sum of €----------- or I bequeath (the item specified) to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of (insert local address of SVP here) and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer, or other officer, for the time being of the said Organisation shall be a full and sufficient discharge of the same.”

Please remember when you are drawing up your will that you should consider your family and loved ones first.

We always advise that you should seek professional advice. Your solicitor should be able to give you more helpful information about the things you need to consider when writing, amending, or updating your will.
