While most of us would prefer not to think of our death, it’s worth taking time to consider how we’d like to pass on our legacy. What would you like to pass on, and to whom? What are the causes that are close to your heart? Setting out your intentions in a will or inheritance contract will create clarity for you and your loved ones.
An inheritance or bequest (legacy) will allow you to support causes that are important to you following your death. You can help others by including charitable organizations such as the Reka Foundation for Holiday Aid in your will, making affordable holidays in Switzerland possible for families or single parents on a tight budget. Your contribution will enable children to enjoy a holiday to remember.
Thanks to the new inheritance law as of 1 January 2023, you now have more freedom in terms of the arrangements you make – go to www.admin.ch or contact your notary for more information.
You can appoint the Reka Foundation for Holiday Aid as your heir or make a bequest in your will. The compulsory portions and formal requirements (handwritten will, place and date, signature at the end, etc.) need to be taken into account when drafting your will – and we’ll be happy to help you with this.
Your bequest can help to make the dream of an unforgettable holiday come true for children and parents affected by poverty.
