Make a Gift

RDS Members, who became philanthropists the day they join the RDS, continue to inspire the development of our projects each and every year in areas such as science, music and the visual arts, among others. President Matt Dempsey wrote to our Members in May 2016 to tell them about some exciting and pioneering plans we have to deepen our commitment to, and investment in, these areas of Irish life and culture.

Many Members have already responded generously to our 2016 campaign and we are sincerely grateful for their support and leadership. We have passed 60% of our campaign goal. If you would like to join them, and us, and make a gift to the 2016 Membership campaign please send it to us today by printing and filling in the Remittance Gift Form or by using the Freepost envelope provided in the information pack sent to Members last May.

If you are a taxpayer and make a gift of €250 or more we can send you an easy-to-complete form which will help us to reclaim tax on your gift. For example, a gift of €1,000 from an individual Member could be worth an additional €449 to the RDS, at no additional cost to you.

If you would like more information on our 2016 Membership Campaign or to make an immediate gift payment, please call Eamonn Carroll, Membership Relationship Manager on +353 1 2407297 or email eamonn@rds.ie

A Lasting Legacy

Legacy gifts, such as the RC Lewis Crosby Prize for visual art, continue to play a vital role in funding for our philanthropy projects. We encourage Members to consider remembering the RDS in this way to help ensure the Society’s continued contribution to future generations.

Speaking of his late father’s bequest to the RDS, Antony Lewis Crosby says “There are many Members of the RDS with similar dedication to the Society and its aims and objectives, and it would give me great pleasure to think that my father’s example might spur someone else to consider leaving something in their will to ensure that the RDS can continue to thrive into the future. We have been very happy with how the RDS has expertly managed the Fund bequeathed by my father, so what could be a better way, after looking after family and friends, to provide for the long-term future of the work of the RDS?”

If you would like to discuss leaving a Legacy bequest to the RDS please contact Eamonn Carroll in confidence by telephone 01 2407297 or email eamonn@rds.ie
