Make a Lasting Difference: Choose the Giving Option that Works for You


Get Permission

If you are like the many supporters of the Conquer Cancer Foundation, you may have reached a point where you would welcome the opportunity to influence not only the future ownership of your possessions, but the meaning that others assign to your life. One way to accomplish this is by considering the means by which you will provide for the people and causes you cherish most.

When it comes to defining your legacy at the Conquer Cancer Foundation, your options are numerous. Below are just a few of the ways you can express your values through a gift to help conquer cancer.

  • Donate today. A yearly, monthly, or one-time gift helps provide operational necessities to the Foundation.
  • Include us in your will. Designating the Conquer Cancer Foundation in your will can help create a world free from the fear of cancer. The following sample language can be considered by a donor’s estate planners in drafting a simple bequest to the Foundation:

“I give [the sum of $__]  OR  [__% of my estate] OR [all or __% of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate] to the Conquer Cancer Foundation of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, a Virginia nonstock corporation located at 2318 Mill Road, Suite 800, Alexandria, Virginia, 22314 (Federal Tax ID: 31-1667995), to be used for its general purposes.”

  • Establish a life income gift. Receive fixed or variable payments for life and gain valuable tax advantages when you create a life income gift.
  • Donate life insurance. You can easily support our mission by naming the Conquer Cancer Foundation of the American Society of Clinical Oncology as a beneficiary on a policy you already own.
  • Consider your retirement plan assets. By making a simple designation on your plan’s beneficiary designation form, you can help the Conquer Cancer Foundation and potentially lessen tax obligations of your loved ones.

Please consult with an attorney and other appropriate estate planners when writing your will or making other estate plans.
