Planned Giving

Become a Prevention Partner and leave a legacy to the Prevent Cancer Foundation®.

Planned giving benefits the Prevent Cancer Foundation®, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and presents the opportunity for tax benefits and income for you. There is a wide variety of gift vehicles to consider, ranging from a bequest in your will to various types of charitable trusts. Because planned giving involves your assets, philanthropic goals and family needs, we strongly suggest you consult your attorney or financial planner before entering into any planned gift. We’re ready to help.
