Ways to donate

Ways To Help CRY

CRY is most grateful to accept contributions of any magnitude. We rely solely on the public support to help keep our CRYP Screening Centre open as well as helping with our free counselling service and raising awareness for Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

Direct Debit

Have you considered setting up a monthly standard order for CRY?

This is one of the best ways to make a donation because it means CRY has a regular guaranteed source of income, and because it is not restricted to a particular project, CRY can utilise the money where it is most needed. It’s also an easy way for you to give money as it is forwarded automatically to the CRY Charity on a monthly basis.

A small amount of money can make a huge difference, your help enables us to help & support others. Please download and print the enclosed form or email [email protected].

Wedding Favours

If you would like wedding favours that truly are a gift and you want to do something extra special on your big day, why not make a donation to CRY in lieu of wedding favours?

Your wedding gift to CRY will go a long way in ensuring that lives are saved by ensuring that underlying heart conditions are discovered in families that attend the screening centre. It will also provide comfort to many people through the counselling services we provide as well as helping us to raise awareness for SADS.

If you decide to support CRY by purchasing our wedding favours your guests can still take home a special momentum from the day. We have beautiful Wedding Favour cards which you can check out here.

If you would like to support CRY with Wedding Favor Cards please email [email protected] for more details and pricing.

In your Will

It goes without saying that your loved ones come first when you make your will. In saying that, a gift left in your will to a charity is a means of giving something back and is a way of remembering the people and the causes that you care about.

By giving a small gift in your will to CRY, this will ensure that vital services are provided to families throughout Ireland who have lost someone to Sudden Cardiac Death. It will also help us to reduce the deaths going forward from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

There are four ways in which you can make a bequest to CRY:

  • As a gift of a specific amount of money – known as a pecuniary.
  • As a gift of a specific item – known as a legacy.
  • As a gift of the rest of your assets that you have not already given away – known as a residuary bequest.
  • If you have already made a will and you wish to give a gift to CRY, you will need to prepare a new will, or ask your solicitor to add a codicil (addition) in a similar way to the original will, which should be kept in the same place as the original will.
Please contact [email protected] or phone + 353 1 414 2235 for further information.

Tax Relief

Tax Relief for donations – did you know that your donation of €250.00 or more in the year could be worth up to 72% more to CRY – and the good news is – there is no extra cost to you.

By simply completing the appropriate form which can be downloaded here or by contacting CRY at [email protected] for a copy of the form, then by ticking the appropriate tax bracket on the form, dating, signing and finally returning it to us we can make our claim. It is that simple.

What donations qualify for tax relief?

If you are a PAYE tax payer donations over €250 or more in any one year are eligible. You don’t have to make this payment in one donation. They are cumulative so a standing order of €21.00 per month will bring you over the threshold.

If you have queries please call + 353 1 414 2235 or email us at [email protected]


You are a PAYE tax payer and paying tax at the standard rate of 20%. You donate €250 in the year to CRY. When you sign and return your tax form to CRY this donation is actually worth €312.50 to us but there is no additional cost to you.

My Legacy

Did you know you can leave a legacy gift to support the work of CRY Ireland? My Legacy was established in 2006 by a small group of Irish charities who knew at first hand the great impact a legacy gift can have on the work of a charity. They also realised that, unlike other countries, many Irish people do not make a will despite how important a life document it is. Since then, My Legacy has grown to an umbrella group of 70 Irish charities who work together to promote the great importance of making a will and to ask people to consider leaving a legacy gift to a favourite charity, once family and friends have been taken care of and all other important personal decisions have been made.

My Legacy is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors mainly drawn from our member charities and our work is funded by annual membership fees. My Legacy provides unbiased, useful information to individuals, charities and solicitors about leaving legacies to charities. My Legacy does not solicit specific gifts or legacies for individual organisations. Click Here for More Information
