CCS adapting to COVID-19 realities to support Canadians during and after the pandemic
Gifts in wills
Whether directly or indirectly, all those touched by cancer share the same hope for the future. By making a planned gift to the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) you help us save more lives and keep this hope alive.
A gift by will is a type of planned gift which is significant and inspiring, and accessible to all. To help you make this important gesture, our planned giving consultant is here to answer your questions and assist you in preparing for a meeting with your financial planner or your notary, and to provide you with sample wording for clauses to include in your will.

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 fund the fight against cancer. Those donations have paid off. Today, 63% 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 we must continue this fight. No one wants a loved one to face a cancer diagnosis. If we keep believing, and keep giving, we can win this fight for everyone.
