Gift in Wills

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

How will your gift make a difference?

Childhood cancer impacts a family for life. We understand how important it is to not only support the family during treatment but to invest in clinical research for those that follow.

By including the Children’s Cancer Foundation in your Will, you will create a lasting legacy for childhood cancer and treatment.

Who can leave a gift in their Will?

Everyone. Gifts left to the Children's Cancer Foundation 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. Gifts can be large or small. Once you have taken care of loved ones, a gift to the Children’s Cancer Foundation can make a real difference to children with cancer.

How to leave a gift in your Will?

Including a gift in your Will to the Children’s Cancer Foundation is straightforward and we’re here to help. We understand it is a personal decision and we encourage you to discuss your thoughts with your family and friends.

Once you have made the powerful decision to leave a gift in your Will, it is important that your wishes are carried out correctly. There are three main types of gifts you can choose to leave:

A residuary bequest – after taking care of family and loved ones, you can leave all or a percentage of the remainder of your estate;
A portion of your estate – leave a nominated portion or fixed percentage of your estate;
A specific bequest – leave a specific sum of money or shares.

Suggested wording:

"I give free of all duties and taxes [insert the dollar sum or percentage of your estate 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."
