Bequests

You can help provide for future cancer research and education through a simple bequest in your will. We recommend you consult with your attorney when drafting a new will, or when changing an existing will or creating a living revocable trust, if you wish to include a bequest for fighting cancer.

Your bequest to the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) to help in the war against cancer can be a cash amount, a gift of the remainder of your estate, or a portion of the remainder, after obligations to your family and loved ones are met.

Your attorney can easily help you make a bequest to AICR. To do so, your attorney can include a paragraph similar to the following in your will:

"I give, devise and bequeath to the American Institute for Cancer Research for its general purposes [state fraction or percentage of the rest, residue and remainder] in my estate, both real or personal."

OR

"I give and bequeath to the American Institute for Cancer Research the sum of $_____________ to be used for the general purposes of the Institute."

To include a bequest solely for cancer research, have your attorney include the following or a similar paragraph in your will:

"I hereby give, devise and bequeath to the American Institute for Cancer Research [whatever amount or percentage you so desire]. The use of this bequest is restricted to funding cancer research grants approved by the American Institute for Cancer Research."

Your attorney will need to know:

AICR's telephone number: (202) 328-7744, (800) 843-8114
