What kind of gift can I make?

• A percentage of my estate
The best form of bequest for most people is allocating a proportion of their estate to Breast Cancer Care WA. This allows you to decide the share of your estate that you believe is right. You don’t need to know exactly how much your estate will be worth as the gift will grow along with the growth of your estate.
• A residual gift
You can bequest the balance – or residue – of your estate to Breast Cancer Care WA after your family and friends have been looked after. This kind of gift automatically adjusts to the growth in the value of your estate.
• A pecuniary gift for a specific amount of money
Leaving a specific amount of money is a simple way of leaving a gift in your Will because you know exactly how much Breast Cancer Care WA will receive, regardless of any change in the value of your estate.
• Property, possessions, shares or insurance
You can leave a specific gift of property such as an insurance policy, shares, art works, land, jewellery or any other item of value.
• Making a gift of land
Breast Cancer Care WA welcomes gifts of real estate. If you are intending to leave us a gift of this nature, we encourage you to please contact us, so we can explore with you whether we will be able to retain or sell your land in the event it is given to us.
