Memorial Gift

In the year 2001 CARF was established as a trust wide reg. no. E-19625(Mumbai) dated 12th September 2001 with a pledge to help poor and needy cancer patients.

Leaving a gift in your will to Cancer Aid & Research Foundation is a lasting and effective way to support us.

We recognize that making a will is an intensely personal and private matter, and naturally your first consideration will be to make proper provision for your family's future. Once you are sure that they are well provided for, you may like to make a special bequest to a charity and, if this is the case, we would like you to consider making a bequest to Cancer Aid & Research Foundation.

Memorial Donations

Honor a friend or family member by donating to charity in their memory. It's a meaningful way to pay tribute and show how they live on in your heart.

How Do Memorial Donations Work?

You choose the charity and donate on our secure website using any major credit card. Select the amount you want to give and add the name of the person whose memory you are honoring as well as the individual to inform about the gift. We email you a receipt, all contributions are 50% tax deductible.

Types of Legacies

The five standard types of legacy are described below. Your solicitor or financial advisor will be able to advise you on how best to make or alter your Will to include a legacy to Cancer Aid & Research Foundation.

Your gift may take the form of money, property, or other assets. Depending on the value of your gift, it could significantly reduce the tax liability of your estate.

  • Residuary Legacy – a percentage of the residue of your estate, after the deduction of specific and debts, taxes and costs
  • Pecuniary Legacy – a specific sum of money.
  • Specific Bequest – a gift such as property, stocks or shares, jewellery
  • Conditional Legacy – this addresses the possibility that if none of your named dependants survive you, your estate (or part of it) will be left to Cancer Aid & Research Foundation.
  • Reversionary Legacy – a gift that passes to Cancer Aid & Research Foundation only after the death of a spouse or relative.

Professional legal advice is always recommended when you are drawing up or changing your Will. If you decide to include Cancer Aid & Research Foundation in your Will, it is entirely up to you whether you choose to let us have any details.

Some donors may have very good reasons for not informing the Trust of their bequest. When there is no objection, however, sending us a Pledge Form gives us the opportunity to express our gratitude during your lifetime.

Your legacy, however great or small, will always be highly valued.
