A gift in your will
No one should face cancer alone.
Please support the Cancer Society so no one has to. Leaving a gift in your will ensures that we can keep providing free services now and in the future.
No matter how large or small, a gift in your will to the Cancer Society's Wellington Division is a powerful way to create hope for a better tomorrow for our children and grandchildren.
Your will can:
- change lives for the better by ensuring those going through cancer receive compassionate care and support
- increase life expectancy for cancer patients by funding cancer research; and
- help stamp out preventable cancer through health promotion and education.
If you would like to speak to us in confidence about a gift in your will, please contact:

Receive $250 towards your legal costs
Once you have made a bequest to us through your will, or by way of a memorandum of wishes, you can arrange for your lawyer or the Public Trust to send us an account for up to $250 (excl. GST) towards the cost of your legal fees.
What is the Hope Fellowship?
The Hope Fellowship has been created to both engage with and gratefully acknowledge those who have notified us of their intent to leave a bequest to the Cancer Society Wellington in their will.
These notifications are invaluable to us when making fiscal decisions about our future. Those donors who have supported us for extended periods with frequent and or large donations will be invited to meet with the leadership of the organisation in Hope Fellowship forums to discuss together operational and capital funding requirements and ideally projects of shared interest and intent.
If you have made, or are intending to make a gift in your will to the Cancer Society Wellington, we would love to hear about it and welcome you to the Hope Fellowship.
