Writing your Will

Speak to your family and loved ones.

Leaving a gift in your Will is a personal decision but it can be helpful to tell your loved ones about what you’ve planned.

Decide what kind of gift to leave.

There are three main ways to leave a gift in your Will to Cancer Council SA:

Residual
You can leave a portion of your estate, or the balance remaining after loved ones and expenses are provided for.

Specific
You can leave a specific sum of money.

Asset
You can leave specific items of value such as shares or real estate.

Get the help of a professional solicitor

Whatever your circumstances, we recommend that you see a solicitor when writing or updating your Will to ensure your wishes will be fulfilled.

Margaret has left a gift in her will to Cancer Council SA

Margaret watched breast cancer impact three generations—her great-grandmother, her grandmother, and her mum. So when her best friend was diagnosed, she turned to Cancer Council 13 11 20.

Hopefully they’ll have to wait a little while, but my little contribution (whenever it happens) will be a gift to help Cancer Council SA continue their important work.” – Margaret, Cancer Council SA Gift in Will supporter.
