Brain cancer doesn’t discriminate. It kills more Australian children than any other disease, and more people under 40 than any other cancer. The cause is unknown, and current treatments are ineffective for most. Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is working tirelessly to change this, while also advocating on behalf of the Australian brain cancer community.
Leaving a gift in your will to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is a unique way to support a cause that greatly impacts many lives. This act of generosity and selflessness will be greatly appreciated by the Foundation and all the people that we are trying to help on the road to finding a cure for brain cancer.

Why leave a gift in your will to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation?
Funds from a bequest to be received into the future, will be prioritised to a cure for brain cancer. Our purpose is to accelerate research to identify and develop new treatment options for people diagnosed with brain cancer.
Your generosity will enable us to strategically invest in the world’s best brain cancer research, impactful advocacy and increasing awareness to help rapidly increase brain cancer survival.
Only 20% survival
There are more than 120 types of brain tumour and the few treatment options currently available do not work for most patients.
A fraction of the funds
Compared to other cancers, brain cancer research receives a fraction of the funding. Which is why children and adults with this disease are in the greatest need of support.
The financial cost of brain cancer - to both patients and society - is the highest of all cancers.
How to leave a gift in your will
We know that family comes first and encourage you to discuss this decision with your loved ones. Making a will does not need to be complicated, however we recommend seeking legal advice to talk through how you would like your estate to be distributed to make sure that the people and causes you are about are taken care of in the way that you wish. And remember, we’re here to help if you have any questions.
We have provided the sample “bequest clause” which you can give to your solicitor to include in your will. It is just a few lines and includes the correct information that makes sure your wishes are respected.

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

A residuary gift is the most powerful way to make a
difference to those affected by brain cancer, but every kind helps.
