Would you consider leaving a gift in your will?

Remembering The Kids’ Cancer Project in your will is a significant way to help find better treatments, and ultimately a cure, for childhood cancer.

By leaving a gift in your will, you pave the way for a life free from cancer for all children in the future. It's a powerful legacy.

“I’ve been to too many funerals. I’ve seen too many children die before their time.” 
Col Reynolds OAM, Founder and Director, The Kids’ Cancer Project
 

I want to provide for children with cancer in my will

Writing or changing your will is a deeply personal decision. Many people feel most comfortable leaving what is 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, please let us know. It's wonderful to hear from those who’ve made (or who are considering making) such a great gift.

Wording for your will:

If you already have a will, simply add a codicil (a short legal amendment) to it. Here is some 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.”
Sue's life-saving decision

Sue was diagnosed with breast cancer early in 2014. At the end of the year, after surgery followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy, she was cancer free. 

Sue’s experience made her think about her grandchildren. How would her family deal with the trauma if one of the kids was diagnosed with cancer?

When you leave a gift to The Kids’ Cancer Project in your will, you help create a cancer-free future for the next generation. 

“I wouldn't want my adult children to experience 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 Veena Singh on 1800 651 158 or email veena@tkcp.org.au to discuss your gift.

“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.” Col Reynolds OAM, Founder and Director, The Kids' Cancer Project
