Bequests and inheritances
Your energy, your enthusiasm and your determination to fight leukaemia in life, can continuethrough inheritances and legacies. A house of one of our members can become an accommodation home for patients and their families during treatment. A collection of jewellery can be transformed into new research infrastructure. A share of stock can be a transplant to those in need.
WHAT IS A CHARITABLE INHERITANCE?
Is to include in your will one or more NGOs, either leaving a part of your estate (inheritance), or a particular good (legacy), no matter what value is, and without prejudice in any case to your rightful heirs.
WHY MAKING A WILL IS IMPORTANT?
Making a will is always advisable to make your last wishes known and to make things easier for the family. It is not a question of age. It is a responsible thing to do which saves expense and future worries for the people you most love. It is a favour for your descendants and to yourself. And you can always change it without having to explain anything to anyone. So making a will is a way of thinking about what you have and who will use it best. If there are no heirs and no will, the estate passes to the State.
WHAT CAN WE GET WITH YOUR CHARITABLE INHERITANCE OR LEGACY?
HOW TO INCLUDE THE JOSEP CARRERAS FOUNDATION IN YOUR WILL?
There are various ways of including the Foundation in your will depending on your circumstances:
- If you want to leave a legacy. You can leave a specific item that you think might help us achieve our aim: “I leave the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Foundation the sum of €XXXXX to be used in achieving the Foundation’s aims.”
- If you want to leave your estate to more than one person or institution. You can name the Josep Carreras Foundation as co-heir, indicating in the will the percentage of the estate you wish to bequeath.
- If you have no heirs. You can name the Josep Carreras Foundation as sole legatee: “I name the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Foundation as sole legatee of my entire estate to be used in achieving the Foundation’s aims.”
You only need to mention it in your will.
