Where your money will go
We will continue to work across every aspect of cancer; funding life-saving research, delivering prevention programs, advocating for cancer-related policy reforms, and providing practical and emotional support from point of diagnosis through treatment and beyond to anyone affected.
Though needs and priorities will change over time, you can be sure that your gift – no matter when it arrives – will be used to reduce the impact of cancer for the people of Victoria.
Leaving a gift for research purposes
Gifts left for Cancer Council’s ‘general purposes’ are preferred as they can be used where most needed for any aspect of our work at any given time.
However, if preferred, you can specify that you would like your gift to be used for Cancer Council’s ‘research purposes’. Gifts in Wills received for research purposes are used to help fund an area of research receiving strategic priority at the time.
To make sure we achieve maximum impact from our research investment, and because priorities change, it’s important to have as much flexibility as possible in how gifts for research purposes are used.
If you have a more specific idea for your gift, please call our Bequest Manager on 03 9514 6512 in confidence for advice.
