A gift in your Will

Bequest Girl Daffodils

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 
  • Help stamp out preventable cancer through health promotion and education 

If you would like to speak to someone in confidence about a gift in your Will email bequest@cancersoc.org.nz or phone Judith Langridge on 04 389 8421.

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.

The Hope Fellowship Ambassador 

We are proud to announce that Dame Fran Wilde has agreed to become the inaugural Ambassador of the Hope Fellowship.  Having had a close personal connection with cancer, Dame Fran is aware of the work the Cancer Society carries out in the community.  She has been an avid supporter of our fundraising events for many years, and we are delighted that she will be joining us in a more formal capacity as our Ambassador.
