Bequests

What is a bequest?

A bequest (also known as a legacy) is a gift of money or assets that you leave through your Will. Bequests assist us to continue providing long-term support to families dealing with the impacts of childhood cancer.

You can choose to make a bequest in the following forms:

The Residue:

This is what is left after you have made provisions to your family and friends. You may choose to have this residue donated to Childhood Cancer Support Inc.

A percentage:

You can state in your Will that you wish to leave a percentage of your Estate to Childhood Cancer Support Inc.

A Specific Sum: 

You can state in your Will a specific sum to be donated to Childhood Cancer Support Inc. NB: Considering inflation and changes in circumstances, it is necessary to regularly review your will.

How can you make a bequest to Childhood Cancer Support?

Childhood Cancer Support Inc. strongly recommends that you consult a qualified legal adviser when making a Will. Whilst Childhood Cancer Support Inc. is not providing you with any legal advice the following wording could be considered by your legal adviser: 

  • If you wish to make a residuary gift: 

“I give all the rest of my real and personal property whatever and wherever situated to Childhood Cancer Support Inc. for its general purposes and the receipt of the Secretary or other authorised officer of Childhood Cancer Support Inc. shall be a sufficient discharge to my executor or trustee.”

  • If you wish to donate a percentage of your estate:

“I give __% of my estate Childhood Cancer Support Inc. for its general purposes. The receipt of the Secretary or other authorised officer of Childhood Cancer Support Inc. will be a sufficient discharge to my executor or trustee.”

  • If you wish to donate a specific sum:

“I give the sum of $______to Childhood Cancer Support Inc. for its general purposes. The receipt of the Secretary or other authorised officer of Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia will be sufficient discharge to my executor or trustee.”
Childhood Cancer Support Inc. respects the fact that your Will is a personal matter and that making a bequest is a significant act of generosity. If you would like more bequest information or clarification, please contact:
