Leave a Bequest


In making a bequest to the Childhood Cancer Association, you will join a special group of people who are passionate about investing in the future of children with cancer.

"I am proud to endorse the Childhood Cancer Association bequest program, and can assure you that your gift (of any size), will make an incredible impact on the lives of South Australian children going through treatment for cancer, and their families. 

It is vital that this organisation continues well in to the future, to ensure families are not alone at this extremely difficult time."  Read Michelle's story >

How your legacy will assist

Thanks to your generosity, you will ensure vital services and support continue to be available to children with cancer, and their families. For example:

  • Professional counselling
  • Accommodation for country families
  • Respite accommodation for all families
  • Daily hospital visits
  • Sibling support groups
  • Bereavement support
  • Education support

Types of bequests

We are extremely grateful for bequests of any size. 

You can leave a bequest to the Childhood Cancer Association in the following ways:

  • Leave a specific sum of money or an item bequeathed to the Childhood Cancer Association
  • Leave the residue or a percentage of an estate
  • Leave a life insurance or superannuation policy
  • Leave your whole estate. This is usually gifted by people without other beneficiaries

How to make a bequest to the Childhood Cancer Association 

Because a bequest is a gift made through your Will, we strongly recommend that any change you wish to make is done in consultation with your lawyer or advisor.

An example of bequest wording is set out below, but should be only used as a guide for you and your solicitor. The exact wording will depend on the type of bequest you wish to make.

I give [the sum of $...........] or [...........% of the balance of my estate] or [specified assets] to the Childhood Cancer Association Incorporated of Level 1, 55 King William Road, North Adelaide SA 5006 (for its general purposes). The receipt of the Childhood Cancer Association Incorporated will be sufficient discharge to my Executor/Trustee and declare that my Executor/Trustee shall not be responsible for seeing to the application of that gift.

If you are preparing your own Will, the Childhood Cancer Association is a member of Charity Wills - a free online Will service. To use this service please visit www.charitywills.net.au/childhoodcancer

Help us make a difference today!

The Childhood Cancer Association is a fully self-funded organisation and therefore relies on the generous support of the community.

Childhood cancer presents many challenges for the child and their family. It affects not only the child but their brothers and sisters, parents, grandparents, friends and the whole community.

The Childhood Cancer Association provides support to the entire family.

Please help us make the cancer journey easier for these families!
