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) [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 shall be a full and sufficient discharge to my Executors.”

No amount is too small, every dollar can make a difference. Cure Our Ovarian Cancer will use your gift wisely to help benefit women affected by low grade serous ovarian cancer.

If you prefer to give to a UK organisation we recommend you support the Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre. You can find information on how to make a bequest to them here https://www.ed.ac.uk/giving/legacy. Be sure to specify that your gift is to be used for low-grade serous ovarian cancer research.
