Brian Moore champions the importance of giving back to a world that’s brought him so much in life, in spite of losing his wife to an aggressive form of cancer just shy of two years ago.

It’s why they both decided, prior to her passing, to will a portion of their estate – on top of a $25,000 donation – to the BC Cancer Foundation. Their gift will help support new treatment options, providing hope for patients across British Columbia and beyond.

 

Discovery needs willing partners

The BC Cancer Foundation funds leading-edge research by scientists at the BC Cancer Agency who are discovering new and better ways to diagnose, treat and prevent the disease. This vital knowledge is improving – and saving – the lives of men, women and children in communities throughout British Columbia.

Cancer research can take years of painstaking, diligent work. Our researchers need to know their studies will continue to be funded for as long as it takes to find the next breakthrough. And that’s where you can help – by remembering the BC Cancer Foundation in your will.

A lasting partnership

By arranging for a bequest and telling us about it now, you can help us plan the life-saving research of tomorrow and fully commit to funding our scientists’ critical work today.

What is a bequest?

A bequest is a gift made in your will – and a highly effective way of carrying on your support for the people and causes that mattered most to you during your lifetime.

How do I include a gift in my will?

Whether or not you already have a will, the easiest way to include a gift in your will is to get professional help from a legal advisor experienced in preparing wills. If you need help finding a suitable legal advisor, we will be very happy to help you. We can also help ensure that your gift will be used as you intend by providing suggested bequest wording for your will, which you can bring to your legal advisor.

What’s in a Name?

When including a gift to the BC Cancer Foundation in your will or any other document, it is extremely important that you use our correct legal name: BC Cancer Foundation. Since many charities have similar names, changing even one word in the name, such as using “society” instead of “foundation,” can lead to confusion. When planning your gift, please make sure you use our full legal name.

Legal Name: BC Cancer Foundation

Registration Number: 11881 8434 RR0001
