Consider Leaving a Gift in Your Will

Why leave a gift in your will?

In Tasmania  more than eight Tasmanians are newly diagnosed with cancer every day. At these rates it is expected that one in two Tasmanian men and women will be effected by cancer by the age of 85.

By leaving a gift in your Will you will be helping in the fight against cancer. All funds raised in Tasmania stay in Tasmania to help Tasmanians dealing with cancer. Your gift will help Cancer Council Tasmania’s mission statement to ‘minimise the incidence and impact of  cancer on all Tasmanians’.

Your gift, no matter the size, will help us in our fight and enables us to plan for the future in relation to new and improved current and future  prevention, education, advocacy, research and support programs.

As Cancer Council Tasmania is more than 90 per cent funded by the community gifts in Wills are an important source of income to assist us in continuing our vital work. Since 1988 there has been improved survival rates in Tasmania by more than 34 per cent.

The 5-year survival for all Tasmanians with cancer diagnosed in 2004-2008 was 64.2%, which showed marked improvement from the 42.3% seen for cancers diagnosed in 1984-1988.*

If you do decide to leave a gift in your Will you can be assured your generosity will make a difference in the fight against cancer.
