Leave a lasting legacy
Leaving a gift in your Will to Cure Cancer will not only impact your loved ones, it will also bring about real, positive change for the future. We are incredibly grateful to all the individuals who put their faith in groundbreaking cancer research. Because of you, tomorrow will be different.
Why leave a gift in your Will?
By helping to fund the brightest minds in scientific research, your legacy will live on in the hearts of those you touch.
Countless lives have been saved thanks to people like you who have generously supported cancer in the past. By leaving a bequest, you will be contributing to a brighter future – one where we can cure cancer.
Even 1% of your estate can make a monumental difference for a cancer patient who is looking for hope.

Types of gifts
There are many types of bequests, but some of the most common are listed here. You could also choose to direct your bequest to a type of cancer research that’s close to your heart or to wherever need is greatest.
- Residual bequest – After taking care of friends or family, you can leave all or a percentage of the remainder of your estate.
- Percentage bequest – A percentage of the overall value of your estate, which allows for growth or depletion of the value of your estate.
- General or pecuniary bequest - A gift or fixed amount of money.
- Asset bequest – Specific items like property, shares, bonds, art, or jewellery.
It’s important to have the correct wording to ensure that your wishes are carried out correctly. While we have provided some suggestions in our Will to Cure Cancer Guide, we strongly recommend that you consult your legal advisor for further assistance.
