What is a legacy of solidarity?

The solidarity bequest is a testamentary disposition to benefit a non-profit institution. For us it is the way to keep alive your effort to achieve a better world. For us, your collaboration is essential and it is tangible through the solidarity legacy.

What is the difference between a will and a bequest?

In short, a legacy is a specific asset (a house, a car, a piece of jewelry) while an inheritance is a succession in which the estates of both the heir and the deceased are merged. In an inheritance, the heir succeeds the deceased in the ownership of his assets, but also in his debts, and acquires all the rights and obligations that are not extinguished by the death of the individual. Whereas in a legacy, the legatee acquires specific assets, but is not liable for the liabilities of the inheritance.
