Wills and Estates

​By adding a simple amendment to your will, called a codicil, you can easily leave an estate gift to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation - BC/Yukon Region. As well, you can choose to designate your gift to one of the five key areas we focus on to achieve our goal of a future without breast cancer:

• Breast Cancer Prevention

• Health Care Workforce

• Breast Cancer Early Detection

• Breast Cancer Treatment

• Breast Cancer Research

A gift to “the area of greatest need” allows the Foundation to support our most urgent and promising projects.

Your estate will receive a tax receipt for the value of the gift which can be used to offset tax otherwise payable on your terminal tax return and on the preceding year’s tax return. You can donate either a set amount or a portion of the residue of your estate.

Click here to download the information your lawyer will need to draft your codicil or new will and for sample will clause wording.
