Bequest Language

Bequests. The Foundation will actively encourage bequests of property and will work with all appropriate parties to ensure that all bequests comport with both the wishes of the testator and the policies of the Foundation. Gifts of property must be reviewed in accordance with this Policy before acceptance by the Foundation. The following sample language can be considered by a potential donor's estate planners in drafting a simple bequest to the Foundation:

"I give [the sum of $_______] OR [______% of my estate] OR [all or ___ % of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate] to the Conquer Cancer Foundation of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, a Virginia non-stock corporation located at 2318 Mill Road, Suite 800, Alexandria, Virginia, 22314 (Federal Tax ID: 31-1667995), to be used for its general purposes."

The Foundation reserves the right to disclaim a bequest if its terms are contrary to the needs or wishes of the Foundation. Once the Foundation knows of a bequest, the Foundation will make every effort to protect its interests by following the gift through the probate process.
