A gift in your Will

No matter how large or small, a gift in your Will to the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society is a powerful way to create hope for a better tomorrow for our children and grandchildren.

Your Will can…

  • Change lives for the better by ensuring those going through cancer receive compassionate care and support.
  • Increase life expectancy for people with cancer by funding cancer research. 
  • Help prevent cancer in our communities through health promotion and education.

A gift of any size is always appreciated. Leaving a bequest is a way to give beyond your lifetime and help to ensure the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society can continue to provide our wide range of vital community services. There are several ways to leave a gift to the Cancer Society in your Will:

  • Leave a residue gift: After providing for your family and friends, you can nominate to leave part or all of the remainder of your estate to the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society.
  • Leave a percentage: You can leave a nominated percentage of your estate to the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society
  • Leave a specific gift: You can choose to leave a specific amount of money, real estate, bonds, stock or other assets you believe would be useful to the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society.

When making a Will or establishing a family trust, we suggest you discuss your wish to leave a bequest to the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society with a solicitor or trustee company and talk about the possible options.

While gifts in your Will can be left anonymously, if you decide to leave a bequest to the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Cancer Society please let us know; we would like to thank you for your support.
