At Celtic FC Foundation, we are privileged to receive a wide range of legacy gifts from incredibly generous supporters across the globe. And this been all the more remarkable during the past 15 months or so, as the world has dealt with the harsh and devastating reality of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We fully appreciate that this is a sensitive subject that many of us, understandably, are reluctant to broach. However, Legacy Giving is becoming more and more common and the process is now relatively straightforward.
If you have your own solicitor, they can advise you on the steps required to make a lasting impact and create a special bond with Celtic FC Foundation and the communities we serve.
If not and would like to consider the opportunity further, we can assist you. We have reached an agreement with a number of well-respected law firms, to offer members of the public the opportunity to have their Wills written, or updated, free of charge*. This service is live from today, October 6, 2021 for an initial period of six months.
If you have made a Will in the past, it is also important to bear in mind that the law is constantly evolving and a Will prepared several years ago may not reflect your wishes, particularly if it was instructed prior to 2007.
We are exceptionally grateful to those individuals who have already created – or plan to do so in the future – a lasting bond by deciding to leave a gift to Celtic FC Foundation in their Will. In doing so, they leave a proud legacy, ensuring we can continue to honour the charitable ethos of Brother Walfrid by making a positive difference in some of our most disadvantaged communities.
Further information on Giving a Gift in your Will and contact details for our partner law firms can be found on our website by clicking HERE. Alternatively, supporters may also consider making a donation to the Foundation when the Will is prepared.
Thank you for your magnificent support.
* This initiative has been set up to cover the drafting of ‘simple’ Wills. If your affairs are more complicated then more legal work/advice may be required. In these situations, the solicitor will discuss this in advance, provide a quote and may ask you to pay the balance yourself. However, in the vast majority of cases, a Will drafted on standard terms will be sufficient.
