Yet many people miss out on this chance because they find it hard to come to terms with their own mortality. However, if you would like to be able to determine how your assets are put to use after you’ve gone, you should make a will.
A will contains clear instructions which must be followed, provided they are within the law. A certain portion of your estate is reserved for your immediate relatives, but you are free to choose what to do with the remainder. It is customary to remember people who are close to you in your will. Through your will, however, you can also provide valuable support to organisations dedicated to a cause that is particularly important to you. Without a will, your estate will be distributed according to the law. If you have no legal heirs, your entire estate goes to the state.
If you are care about ensuring the continuing existence of the famous and legendary St. Bernard dogs at the Great Saint Bernard Pass, why not remember the Barry Foundation in your will.
To make the Barry Foundation a beneficiary, you will need to write a will. Our guide to making a will explains how to make a legally valid will and leave a gift or “bequest” to an organisation such as the Barry Foundation.
The Barry Foundation is exempt of inheritance tax. This means that the entire legacy can be used for maintaining the dogs at the Great Saint Bernard Pass.
