Administering an estate

If you are administering an estate which includes a gift to Cancer Council Victoria, we would appreciate you notifying our Estates Coordinator as early as possible with the following:

  • Deceased full name and last address
  • Date of death
  • Grant of Probate or a copy of the final Will

This information can be sent electronically to bequests@cancervic.org.au or you can post the documents to:

In addition to the above, and depending on the type of gift being left to Cancer Council Victoria, we may require additional information or request that the gift be provided to Cancer Council Victoria in a certain way (e.g. the transfer of any shares, in-specie).

For further information or if you have any questions on our requirements or how a gift or distribution can be made to Cancer Council Victoria, please contact the Estates Coordinator on (03) 9514 6369 or bequests@cancervic.org.au.
