Legacy Gifts

Your legacy gift to the Cancer Support Community will help us support each other during critical times in our lives. The vast majority of legacy gifts are made by bequest through a will or trust.

There are also life income gifts that provide you a steady stream of revenue, offer significant tax advantage, and ultimately benefit us.

Many types of assets, in addition to cash, can be used to make a legacy gift. We encourage you to work with your professional advisors and our staff experts to help you determine which type of legacy gift is best for you.

In addition, there are many types of legacy gifts you can easily make [6] without incurring the services of your professional advisor. All you need to do is fill out your provider’s paperwork for the following gifts:

IRA or Pension Plan Life Insurance
Stocks and Bonds Savings/Checking Accounts
Donor Advised Fund Commercial Annuity


“When I learned my prostate cancer had metastasized I was devastated, scared and thought I was going to die. A friend told me about the caring people and comprehensive services at CSC. Cancer affects so much more than your body. It affects relationships, self-image, your sense of hope for the future. This was especially true for me. CSC services including support groups, individual counseling, access to education and tools enabled me to focus on living with cancer rather than dying from it. My legacy gift is a token of appreciation for the help in getting my life back.” — Karl, prostate cancer survivor
