Making a Bequest to WCF

Thank you for considering Women’s Cancer Foundation in your Will. Your support through a bequest will enable us to conduct research to improve the lives of women with gynaecological cancers now and in the future.


Your Will is one of the most important documents that you will ever prepare. It directs the distribution of your estate according to your wishes, ensuring that the people and charities you care about are provided for in the maneer you intend. 

When preparing your Will we recommend that you consult a solicitor to ensure that your wishes are properly expressed using the correct legal wording.

To leave a bequest to the Women's Cancer Foundation in your Will, the following wording is recommended for use:


        I (your name) give to the Women's Cancer Foundation.

        -  the residue of my estate, or

        -  _______ % of my estate, or

I declare that the receipt of an authorised officer of Women's Cancer Foundation will be sufficient discharge to my executors who will not be bound to see the application of the gift.
