Give in your Will

By remembering Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) through a gift in your Will, you are making a unique commitment to a cause that makes a real difference to people’s lives. We rely on the generosity of our supporters – without voluntary donations, including gifts in Wills, our work would simply not be possible.

By leaving a legacy to MSF you can ensure that our financial independence, which enables us to provide medical aid where and when it is needed most, continues. Your contribution is invaluable, whatever the amount.

If you have already made a Will

If you have already made a Will, but would like to leave a gift to MSF, you can do so by making a simple addition to your existing Will. This is called a codicil, and your solicitor can help you with it.

If you have not already made a Will

If you do not have a Will at the moment, we would strongly advise you to see a solicitor.

Although you will have to pay a fee, you will receive professional advice and can be sure that your wishes are achieved.

Our promise

  • We promise that we will endeavour to spend the money in an area of the world that is close to your heart, if that is what you wish. However, do bear in mind we are an emergency organisation and we may no longer be needed in the country or project you have in mind.
  • We promise to respect your right to privacy. You don’t have to tell us how much you have decided to leave to MSF.
  • We promise to use your special gift wisely and effectively.

How to leave a gift to MSF in your Will:

There are three ways in which you can leave a gift to charity in your Will:

{{ ctaright.node.field_explanation }}

  • You can choose to leave a share, or the whole, of what is left in your estate once you have provided for your loved ones. This is called a residuary gift.
  • You can choose to give a gift of a fixed amount of money. This is called a pecuniary gift.
  • You can also choose to leave a specific gift of property, such as a building, jewellery or shares.

Your solicitor will be able to provide you with advice on which option best suits your wishes and personal circumstances.

Your solicitor will need to know our address and registered charity number:

Médecins Sans Frontières Ireland, 9 Upper Baggot Street, Dublin 4

Registered Charity number: 18196
