A gift in your will is a very powerful way to help children who are battling cancer by supporting breakthrough research and important family and therapeutic care.

How will your gift make a difference? As a charity, the Children’s Cancer Foundation receives no government funding so these generous gifts are critical to ensuring we can commit to the long-term funding required to make an ongoing impact and save lives.

There are many ways your legacy can make an impact for children. Your gift can go towards our Endowment Fund, provide families the support they need, provide children with clinical care, or support our extensive clinical research programs.

Who can leave a gift in their will? Everyone. Gifts left to us are made by people from all walks of life, people who want to know they’ll be contributing to a better society beyond their lifetime.

How to leave a gift in your will? Making your will is a personal and private process – it takes time to decide what’s best for you. Discuss your thoughts with your family and friends and if you have any questions, we’re here to help.

Suggested wording: "I give free of all duties and taxes (insert the sum or assets to be gifted) to the Children's Cancer Foundation (ABN 96 114 942 415) absolutely for its general charitable purposes and I declare that the receipt of an officer of that foundation shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my trustee/s."
