In Memory & Legacy Giving

In Memory Giving

In memory giving is a special and touching way to remember a loved one and to celebrate their life.  Many families like to support a charity close to them by asking people to make a donation in lieu of flowers at a funeral. You can let family and friends know this by including a request in the death notice of your loved one, for example:

“We kindly request donations in lieu of flowers to Down Syndrome Ireland. Donations can be made online at”

Holding a collection at a funeral or memorial service is another meaningful way to pay tribute to someone special.  Alternatively, you may wish to make a one-off donation in memory of a loved one and you can do that online here or by calling 01-5632457.

However you choose to support Down Syndrome Ireland, we are here to help you in any way we can. 

Legacy Giving

We all know how important it is to have a will in place to make sure that your wishes are carried out when you’re gone.  When writing a will, and once loved ones are looked after, many people choose to leave a gift, or bequest, to a charity close to their heart.


Why leave a legacy gift in your will?

By leaving a legacy gift, you can help your chosen charity to continue their work into the future.  Our hope is that you will consider leaving a gift in your will to Down Syndrome Ireland which will help to enhance the lives of children and adults with Down syndrome for generations to come.  It will cost you nothing now but your donation, no matter how big or small, will make an invaluable difference in the future.

If you are considering supporting Down Syndrome Ireland in this way, we would love to chat more with you.  We will help you to understand what options are available. We understand this is a very personal decision and all information you share will be held in the strictest confidence.

Let your legacy help their future.
