Bequests: Leaving a Gift in Your Will

When you plan for your future, you give others hope for theirs.

Most of us want to take care of our loved ones, even after we’re gone. Often, we can do this by leaving them something in our wills. Like caring for loved ones through your will, you can also continue to support a cause or work through making a gift in your will to a charity.

Giving a gift to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation in your will can ensure that those facing cancer are taken care of 10, 20, or even 50 years from now.

Your legacy gift could mean a vastly improved future for those touched by cancer – and there are even many benefits for you when you leave a gift in your will.

Whether your gift is large or small, it creates a lasting legacy that helps the Cancer Foundation ensure that local cancer patients have access to the very latest treatments and support that they really need. Your future gift inspires our researchers to work harder to find the best treatments, and your gift also gives hope to those facing cancer.

My bequest has amazing potential: it could help find a cure or help discover new and less invasive treatments. I know my gift will ensure better treatment and support for families just like mine, for a long time!

Now might be a good time for you to start thinking about how you want to plan for the future.

Do you already have a will and want to change or add a gift?

You can speak to your lawyer about your options for revising your will or simply adding to it by way of a codicil.
