Remembering The Kids' Cancer Project in your Will

Important information about the greatest gift you will ever give - a gift in your Will.

Information on Leaving a Gift in your Will

The Kids’ Cancer Project is very appreciative of those thoughtful individuals who are considering leaving a gift to help children, families and researchers they may never meet. Whether you have yet to leave a bequest or have already included us in your Will we thank you for your exceptional generosity.

The process

Leaving a gift in your Will, also known as a bequest, is a relatively simple thing to do however there a few things you need to know first. Here's a helpful checklist:

  1. It is important to check with your solicitor that your Will is valid i.e. signed, dated, correctly witnessed and complies with the laws in your home state or territory.
  2. If you have an existing Will and would like to include a bequest to support our work you can easily add in a codicil, essentially a note, expressing your wish. Please note any codicil needs to be signed, dated and correctly witnessed so it’s a good idea to check with your solicitor that it is correct and therefore legal.
  3. To ensure we receive your bequest it is essential to include our correct name and ABN:
    The Kids’ Cancer Project (make sure to include the apostrophe on Kids’).
    ABN: 13 061 138 181
  4. If you have family and/or close friends, it’s a good idea to let them know that you are leaving a bequest to support research into childhood cancer. They will then know this is your express wish and will be more likely to support your charitable gift.

The wording

Understandably you may wish to leave the majority of your estate to your family, with a certain amount specifically  given to support The Kids’ Cancer Project. This is known  as a residual bequest. Or you may prefer to leave shares and/or property as well as, or in place of, a monetary gift.

This wording covers a range of intentions:

“I give (insert dollar amount/percentage of my estate/percentage of my residuary estate/items of value) to The Kids’ Cancer Project: ABN 13 061 138 181."

A surprise is nice, but knowing is better

By advising The Kids’ Cancer Project you have a left a bequest in your Will, we will be able to update you on our achievements and outcomes, invite you to special events and ensure you are appropriately acknowledged (or kept anonymous if you prefer).

By making such an important gift you will play a big role in providing a brighter future for Australian children diagnosed cancer along with their families.

We also want to ensure you are recognised for your generosity, so once your bequest is finalised please call us on 1800 651 158 or send an email to info@tkcp.org.au

We can’t wait to thank you!
