Gifts that Cost You Nothing Now

Did you know that you can share in our lifesaving mission and touch countless lives by simply signing your name?

When you include a gift for Moffitt Cancer Center Foundation in your will or trust, or by beneficiary designation, you become a most valuable player on one of our country’s most important teams – a team dedicated to saving lives today and tomorrow. You will empower our researchers’ drive to new discoveries. You will assist our staff in offering the most excellent and compassionate care to people who have taken up the fight of their lives.

Once your family and friends are provided for, making Moffitt’s mission to defeat cancer part of your life and legacy is a win-win decision.

In fact, a gift in your will or trust is one of the easiest and most popular ways to make a difference for our shared vision. Most donors choose to make a lasting impact for Moffitt Cancer Center by way of a:

Specific bequest: a stated dollar amount or fraction of the estate, or a specified gift of property.

Residual bequest: a percentage of the estate remainder after other specific bequests have been fulfilled.

Contingent bequest: a gift originally reserved for other beneficiaries but, in the event of their prior passing, is redirected as a charitable donation.
