LEAVE A GIFT IN YOUR WILL

“We die only when we cannot put roots in others”
(Lev Tolstoj)

 Making a Will is a simple and free gesture, yet concrete and conscious gesture that gives us the opportunity to leave a trace of us by supporting even in the future the causes we truly believe in.

With a legacy to the Ambrosoli Foundation you can

  • Safely and transparently allocate a portion of your assets in cash or in kind to Kalongo Hospital and the Midwifery School to ensure adequate care for the most needy and qualified training for young Ugandan women over time
  • Choose to which specific project you wish to donate your legacy – i.e. to the projects for restructuring the paediatric ward, to the support activities for pregnant mothers or to the training of a student of the Midwifery School. The Ambrosoli Foundation will commit itself to respect your will and your gift with seriousness, transparency and continuity.

It’s not about donating all your assets, but contributing with an amount of your choice to the future of the hospital and midwifery school:each of your free choices will help to carry on the work of Father Giuseppe in Kalongo in the future.

Il The College of Notaries of Como and Lecco, recognizing the social value of our proposals, has granted the patronage to our initiatives related to bequests and memorial donations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can anybody make a Will?

Yes. According to the Italian law everybody can make a Will except those who at the time of writing are of unsound mind, minors and those suffering from mental infirmity. If you will draft your will according to the laws of another country please check with competent authorities of your country further information concerning wills.

What happens if I don’t make a Will?

According to the Italian law your patrimony will be shared according to the law between your legitimate heirs: spouse, children, siblings, and if there are no children, relatives up to the sixth degree.
In the event that there are no relatives within the sixth degree, and no will is made, the assets are assigned to the State. If you will draft your will according to the laws of another country please check with competent authorities of your country further information concerning wills.

May I make a legacy for a non-profit organization even if I have relatives?

Of course, according to the Italian law it is possible to donate to a non-profit organization the part of the heritage that falls within the “available” quota. On the other hand, one cannot freely dispose of the “legitimate” quota that Italian law reserves for “legitimate heirs”. If you will draft your will according to the laws of another country please check with competent authorities of your country further information concerning wills.

Is a legacy tax-free?

Yes in Italy it is tax free.

Can I change my mind?
