Supporting Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) with a gift in your Will means helping to create a cancer-free future for your loved ones.

By leaving behind this powerful legacy, you are helping ACRF to back more brilliant cancer research, giving scientists access to cutting-edge technology that drives innovation.

Sadly, two in five Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and the remaining three will be closely affected by a diagnosis. Since 1984, ACRF has boldly supported cancer research projects that seek to progress in the way we prevent, detect and treat all types of cancer.

Micheal Ow, whose cousin sadly died of cancer at a young age, is dedicated to ACRF's mission.

"When I had the opportunity to leave a gift in my Will through ACRF Wills Day, I decided to include a gift to cancer research," he said.

"I believe that finding better treatments for cancer will one day prevent other children from losing their play mates, their siblings and people they love.

"I liked the idea of being able to contribute in the way that 'many drops make an ocean', and I do hope many more people consider leaving a gift in their Will to cancer research. Collectively we can create the ocean of difference to a world without cancer."

We appreciate the significance of your generous contribution to Backing Brilliant cancer research. Your legacy will be used to support projects that meet ACRF standards of excellence for research grant funding, and only the best and boldest research across Australia will receive your support.

Wording for your Will

To assist you in leaving a gift to ACRF, you can use the Will wording supplied below:

"I give to Australian Cancer Research Foundation of (ABN 27 076 461 360) of Suite 903, 50 Margaret Street, Sydney NSW 2000 for the purposes of funding world class cancer research, free from all taxes and duties, (here please specify your gift, e.g. the residue of my estate, XX% of the residue of my estate or the sum of $XXX). I direct that the receipt of any director or other proper officer for the time being of that Foundation will be a sufficient discharge to my Trustees."

We are here to help

We understand that leaving a gift to a charity in your Will is no small commitment and we are here to support you should you wish to do so. By leaving a gift in Will you are giving hope to over 400 people who each day in Australia receive the dreadful news of a cancer diagnosis.

Any bequest amount, large or small, is greatly valued because it ensures that ACRF will have funds to continue supporting cancer research well into the future.

If you would like to leave a legacy to be proud of, please contact our team via or call 1300 884 988 to find out more information.
