The gift of a legacy is generally seen as the peak of the giving pyramid in donor development
— Adrian Sargeant

With a decrease in government funding and a shift from grants to the payment for services performed under contract, legacy fundraising is the single biggest source of voluntary income for charities.  Legacies can have a transformative effect, providing sufficient reserves to ensure that the valuable work of your charity is continued well into the future.

However, making a legacy 'ask' is one of the most delicate tasks a charity may undertake, with some reticent to raise the topic with supporters for fear of causing offence. Far from being linked to one's death, legacies are an opportunity for donors and supporters to think how a gift can support the things they care about well into the future and the difference it will make to beneficiaries.

A successful legacy fundraising strategy needs to be inspired by a creative legacy vision. Our upcoming Professional Certificate in 'Legacy Fundraising' taking place on August 29th at the RCPI No. 6 Kildare Street will look at the huge potential for growth and how charities can tap into this long-term income stream.  It will help attendees develop cutting edge strategies and craft appropriate messages for all platforms that communicates your cause and inspires donors and supporters to leave a legacy.  This course will be tutored by Mary O'Kennedy and Aoife Garvey.

Collective voice

Academy

Irish people are extremely generous when it comes to supporting the causes close to their heart. Best practice charities understand that responding to that generosity with full and open transparency, accountability and ethics are an essential part of instilling trust and confidence. 

That is why training in the skills required are mission critical for professional fundraising charities.
