Leave a Legacy... and Change the Course of Cancer in Manitoba

The CancerCare Manitoba Foundation is the only charity exclusively fundraising for CancerCare Manitoba. Every gift stays right here, supporting CancerCare Manitoba's mission to provide compassionate care to patients and their families living with cancer and ultimately, through research, eradicate this deadly disease.

Any amount counts! Any size of gift will make an incredible difference - simply place a provision in your Will leaving some of your assets to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.

A bequest through your Will would provide you:

  • Satisfaction, knowing your gift will change the course of cancer through vital research, patient care and support.
  • Full control of your assets during your lifetime.
  • The opportunity to make a bequest without affecting your standard of living.
  • Flexibility, allowing you to choose the type of bequest that best suits your circumstances and wishes.
  • Comfort, knowing your estate will receive significant tax credits benefiting your heirs.

How to Make a Legacy Gift

  1. Choose a professional who will help make sure your Will is correct, legally binding and truly reflects your wishes.
  2. Choose an Executor of your Will – a person you can rely on to carry out your wishes.
  3. Make a list of your assets.
  4. Decide how you wish to divide your assets.
  5. Decide on the type of gifts you want to leave.
  6. Keep your Will in a safe place.

Finally, if you like, you can let us know about your plans. While some benefactors prefer to remain anonymous, you, like many others, might appreciate the opportunity to learn more about what we do. We can also advise what opportunities are available for giving and how your gift will truly impact the course of cancer in Manitoba. Most importantly, we would appreciate the opportunity to thank you personally for your kindness!

Thank you for considering supporting CancerCare Manitoba’s research, treatment and care in Manitoba through your Will.
