Support Dzogchen Beara

Generosity has been a fundamental principle of Buddhism since ancient times. Since Dzogchen Beara was founded as a trust dedicated to making the Buddhist teachings of meditation, compassion and wisdom available to the modern world, this spirit of generosity has continued into the 21st Century.

As a supporter of Dzogchen Beara you will help us to meet our objective to make the Tibetan Buddhist teachings of meditation and compassion available to as many people as possible, bringing healing and transformation to the world.

“Generosity is the most natural outward expression of an inner attitude of compassion and loving-kindness.” His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Including Dzogchen Beara Trust in your will is giving the gift of wisdom and compassion to future generations. Legacy donations are becoming an increasingly important source of income, ensuring the sustainable development of Dzogchen Beara and all we offer.

It’s a wise move! Legacies to charity are exempt from tax, so by leaving a gift to Dzogchen Beara, you can substantially reduce the amount of tax payable on your estate.

There are three kinds of legacy:

  • RESIDUARY – A residuary legacy is the gift of the residue of your estate, or a share of the residue, after other bequests to your family and friends have been made and all debts, taxes and expenses have been paid.
  • PECUNIARY – A pecuniary legacy is a specified sum of money, determined when the will (or codicil) is written.
  • SPECIFIC – When a particular item of value is bequeathed, this is a specific legacy. This can include stocks and shares, proceeds of a life assurance policy, property, furniture or jewellery.

AMENDING YOUR WILL – If you already have a will, you can ask your solicitor to make an addition (codicil) to include a gift to Dzogchen Beara. Your solicitor may find the following wording helpful:

1) RESIDUARY REQUEST (For a gift of the residue of an estate): “I give to Dzogchen Beara Trust of Garranes, Allihies, West Cork/Ireland (registered charity number CHY 9368) all [or a fraction] of the residue of my estate for its general charitable purposes, and I direct that the receipt of the Treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the said Trust shall be a full and sufficient discharge of the same”.

2) FIXED SUM BEQUEST (For a gift of a fixed sum or specific item): “I give the sum of € …………………or I bequeath (the item specified) ……………………Dzogchen Beara Trust of Garranes, Allihies, West Cork/Ireland (registered charity number CHY 9368) and I direct that the treasurer or other proper officer for the time being of the said Trust shall be proper and sufficient discharge for the same”.

YOUR PLEDGE: You may wish to inform us of your planned bequest. This will be of tremendous help in planning our future development, and will enable us to acknowledge and dedicate your gift in the most appropriate way.

As an expression of our deep appreciation and a symbol of the long-term vision of your bequest a tree will be planted on the sacred grounds of Dzogchen Beara to dedicate your gift.

The Buddha attained enlightenment under a Bodhi Tree in India over two thousand five hundred years ago. Since that time the tree has come to symbolize not only Buddha’s supreme spiritual realisation, but also his granting of refuge and protection from suffering. It is in this spirit that we will plant the tree at Dzogchen Beara in your name.
