Marie Keating Foundation takes part in Best Will Week launch

Help make a difference in the future, leave a legacy during Best Will Week

This Best Will Week, the Marie Keating Foundation and the other 70 charities of the My Legacy group asks you to continue to support us by making or updating your will and, once family and friends have been looked after, to include a legacy gift to us.  It can be large or small but it will make a difference to our cause in the future. was established in 2003 by a small group of Irish charities who knew at first hand the impact a legacy or bequest can have on the work of a charity and yet research shows only 35% of people living in Ireland have made a will.  Since then, has grown to an umbrella group of over 70 Irish charities who work together to promote the importance of making a will and to ask people to consider leaving a legacy to a favourite charity once all other important personal decisions have been made.
