Paul Collins from Legacy Promotion Ireland presented on the work of the Irish consortia of charities.After considering the merits of both UK and Irish initiatives, the Northern Ireland charities felt a local approach may produce better results.The meeting had very strong representation from charities in Northern Ireland interested in developing legacy giving. It was agreed that a working group be established and this group will meet in January to consider options and plan for future legacy promotion work considering: how to inform the public; improve capacity for legacy fundraising in charities and; how to better engage with will-making legal professionals.The working group will seek to consider what a small consortia of Northern Ireland charities can achieve and the resource implications for such work.For more information or to register interest in Northern Ireland legacy promotion work contact Neil Irwin at NICVA on 028 9087 7777 or email: [email protected] giving is estimated to raise £1.5billion annually across the UK.
