Leave the greatest gift of all - hope. 


Why leave a gift in your will to The Kids' Cancer Project?

Put simply, remembering The Kids’ Cancer Project in your Will is the most substantial and powerful way you can help find a cure for childhood cancer.

By leaving a gift in your Will, you’ll be making a promise to future generations of Australian children diagnosed with cancer. That promise will make a significant difference to the lives of so many, by making it possible for our researchers to provide better treatment and stop this deadly disease sooner rather than later.

You can help pave the way for a life free from cancer for all children.


“I’ve been to too many funerals. I’ve seen too many children die before their time.”

How do I remember The Kids' Cancer Project in my Will?

We understand that writing or changing your Will is a deeply personal decision and your family must always come first.

We find that most people feel comfortable leaving what’s left of their estate after their loved ones have been provided for. This is known as the residue of your estate, or a residual gift.

Other options include leaving a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your total estate, a percentage of the residue of your estate, or items of value (such as shares or real estate). 

If you decide to make this very special gift – or if you’ve already included The Kids’ Cancer Project in your Will, we’d love to hear about your plans. It’s always wonderful to know about those who’ve made or who are considering making such an important gift.

We’d also like to thank you and to keep you up to date on every success you help us achieve on our journey towards finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Wording for your Will:

If you already have a Will, all you need to do is add a codicil, which is a short legal amendment.

We advise you use the suggested wording:

“I give (insert dollar amount/items of value/percentage of my residuary estate) to the Kids’ Cancer Project: ABN 13 061 138 181 for research in the field of childhood cancer.”
“We are so close. It’s just a matter of funding. That’s why I’m leaving a gift in my Will to the Kids’ Cancer Project, because I’m going to keep my promise to future generations of Australian children. I hope you’ll join me. Some people talk about making a difference. Some people actually do. You can be one of them.”

Sue's life-saving decision

In early 2014, Sue was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent surgery followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy and by the end of the year she was cancer free.

Sue’s experience made her think about her grandchildren. How would her family deal with the trauma of childhood cancer?

If you decide to leave a gift to The Kids’ Cancer Project in your Will, like Sue, you will help fund ongoing research and bring us closer to finding a cure – so we don’t have to keep losing kids to deadly, inoperable cancers.

“I wouldn't want my adult children going through the heartache of cancer with their little children. Leaving a gift in my Will is something I can do to make a difference.”
If you have any questions, please call one of our team on 1800 651 158 or email owen@tkcp.org.au to discuss your gift.

Help create a cancer-free future for the next generation.
