CCS adapting to COVID-19 realities to support Canadians during and after the pandemic
Gifts in wills
We’re making great strides against cancer. Many of us can remember when people didn’t even want to say the word ‘cancer’ because of its deadly connotation. Thankfully, that’s changed – a lot.
When the Canadian Cancer Society was founded in 1938, only 25% of those diagnosed would survive their cancers. Donors like you have saved millions of lives. Over the decades, we’ve done a lot. Canadians have given generously to invest in cancer research and new, more effective treatments.
Thousands of Canadians have left gifts in their wills to help make a difference. Those donations have paid off. Today, 65% of people diagnosed with cancer will survive. We’ve come a long– but we still have lots to accomplish.
We’ve made amazing progress in less than one lifetime. But there;s still a lot of work to be done. No one wants a loved one to face a cancer diagnosis. If we keep believing, and keep giving, we can be a force-for-life in the face of cancer.
Whichever your giving preference, we want you to know that you are more than welcome to reach out to us. Our team is available to talk with you should you so desire. We have the experience, expertise and sensitivity to talk with donors about bequest and other types of legacy gifts. Please feel free to contact us anytime. We would love to hear from you.
