Legacy Giving

Person signing a will

A gift in your will is a lasting way to help the next generation of women with low-grade serous. While immediate donations help women already diagnosed.

Legacy giving is as easy as asking your solicitor to add a codicil, which is a short statement that can be added to your existing Will at any time. Ask your solicitor about the exact legal requirements - it usually involves signing a statement in front of two independent witnesses.

Example of a codicil: “I give and bequeath to [Cure Our Ovarian Cancer (Low Grade Serous) Charitable Trust (NZ CC55925) OR BC Cancer Foundation (Registration #11881 8434 RR0001)] for low grade serous ovarian cancer research [list here the percentage of estate, residue of estate or specific amount of money or items], free of all death and estate duties and I declare that the official receipt of [Cure Our Ovarian Cancer (Low Grade Serous) Charitable Trust OR BC Cancer Foundation] shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Executors.”

No amount is too small, every dollar can make a difference. Rest assured both Cure Our Ovarian Cancer and the BC Cancer Foundation would use your gift wisely to help benefit women affected by low grade serous ovarian cancer.

If you leave a gift to the BC Cancer Foundation remember to specify that it is for low-grade serous ovarian cancer research. BC Cancer have some great resources on their website about leaving a gift in your will .
