Leave A Gift In Your Will

Jackie Ellis

My cancer experiences have made me think about and prepare for my future. I have a will because I want to be at ease in my life now. I’ve included the BC Cancer Foundation in my will because I want to know that when I pass, my goal to love and advocate for those who may one day hear “You have cancer” will continue.

Jackie Ellis, Legacy Donor

Leave a Legacy

The BC Cancer Foundation funds leading-edge research by scientists at BC Cancer 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.

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 donation will be used as you intend by providing suggested bequest wording for your will, which you can bring to your legal advisor.

For more information about leaving a gift in your will, or other types of planned gifts such as Endowment funds, RRSPs, RRIFs, or gifts of life insurance, please complete this form and a representative will look forward to speaking with you.

If you have already left us a gift in your will, please let us know to help us plan for the future and to ensure we can honour your wishes.

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
