How to Leave a Gift

Leaving a gift to St. Martin Apostolate in your will is simple. Consult with your legal advisor or solicitor to ensure that your wishes are accurately reflected in your estate plans. Together, we can continue to make a positive impact on the world and create a brighter future for generations to come.

There are many ways to include a gift to St Martin Apostolate in your Will. You could consider a:

  • Pecuniary gift – a specified sum of money.
  • Residuary gift – a share of an estate – a percentage of everything you own after any pecuniary gifts, specific gifts, debts and legal fees have been paid out.
  • Specific gift – a particular item such as a house, car or jewellery.

Writing Your Will

There are a number of options you might like to consider when writing your will. The most important thing is to remember our registered charity number in the wording – CHY7209.

The following wording can be adapted by your solicitor to suit the type of gift you wish to leave:

I give, devise and bequeath to Saint Martin Apostolate (registered charity number CHY7209) of Parnell Square West, Dublin 1, Ireland the sum of €xxx (xxx euros)
or
the whole (or xxx% share) of my residuary estate
or
insert details of a specific gift] to hold on trust for its general charitable purposes, and I declare receipt of the Treasurer or duly authorised officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.

Adding to Your Existing Will

If you have already made a will, but would like to leave a gift to the Apostolate, it is not necessary to rewrite your entire will. You can simply instruct your solicitor to prepare an amendment—a codicil—to your current will. The following wording can be adapted by your solicitor to suit the type of gift you wish to leave:

I (full name) and (full address) declare this to be a (first/second) codicil to my will dated (day month year). In addition to any legacies given in my said will, I give, devise and bequeath to Saint Martin Apostolate (registered charity number CHY7209) of Parnell Square West, Dublin 1, Ireland the sum of €xxx (xxx euros)
or
the whole (or xxx% share) of my residuary estate
or
[insert details of a specific gift] to hold on trust for its general charitable purposes, and I declare receipt of the Treasurer or duly authorised officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge. In all other respects I confirm my said will and any other codicils thereto.

When making or updating your will, we suggest that you consult with your solicitor to ensure your will and/or codicil is legally valid and reflects your intentions.
