Leaving a gift in your Will

Become a hero of hope

Leaving a gift in your will to the Children’s Tumour Foundation (CTF) is a meaningful way to make a lasting impact on the lives of so many. 

Every bequest received by CTF allows us a considerable degree of flexibility and security in planning for the future so we can continue to support those living with Neurofibromatosis (NF).

By including a gift in your Will to CTF, you are joining a family of honoured supporters that we call our Heroes of Hope. Our Heroes of Hope share a common bond: they want a life without limitations for everyone living with Neurofibromatosis.

How to leave a gift in your will

Making a Will or updating your existing Will to include a gift to the Children's Tumour Foundation is not complicated.  We recommend you seek legal advice to talk through how you would like your estate to be distributed to make sure that the people and causes you care about are taken care of in the way that you wish.

Types of gifts in Wills

There are many ways that you can leave a gift in your Will:

Residuary    The remainder of your estate after gifts to your loved ones and expenses have been disbursed.

Percentage    A percentage of either the residue or of the entire estate.

Pecuniary    A gift of a specific set amount.

Specific       Leave a specified cash amount, property, stocks, shares or other items of value.

A residuary gift is the most powerful way to make a difference to those impacted by Neurofibromatosis

Wording for your will

This does not alter your right to change or update your wishes if circumstances change, but it does help us to recognise your support, plan for the future, and ensure that your wishes are carried out.
