Planned Giving


Seven out of ten Americans will die this year without a leaving a will, which means that state governments will decide for them how their assets should be distributed. Make sure that your will reflects your dedication to the battle against cancer by indicating a special gift to the Cancer Research Foundation.

You can make a difference by including a simple clause in your will expressing your desire to make a contribution. Possible phrasing might include:

"I give and bequeath to the Cancer Research Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation located in Chicago, Illinois:

  • a cash bequest of $________ ,
  • a percentage (_ %) of my estate,
  • all the rest, residue and remainder of my estate,

for the uses and purposes of said corporation."
