Leave a Legacy of Hope

Planned giving is an extraordinary opportunity to ensure no one faces breast cancer alone, well beyond your lifetime.

A planned gift to National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is a beautiful way to balance your financial goals while creating a legacy that will support women navigating breast cancer for years to come.

We are honored that you are considering including NBCF as part of your legacy.

Benefits of planned giving include:

  • Current charitable income tax deduction(s)
  • Guaranteed lifetime income for you and/or a loved one
  • Savings on capital gains, income and estate taxes
  • Significant support to National Breast Cancer Foundation

Will or Trusts

A gift in your will or trust is a popular and flexible way to support our work and may be modified throughout your lifetime. This gift type allows you to provide for your family and the causes near your heart in the exact way you would prefer, even if that way changes over time. 

How do I add NBCF to my will or trust?

You can create a gift to National Breast Cancer Foundation in your will or living trust in as little as one sentence. This gift, called a bequest, helps ensure we can continue providing help and inspiring hope to every woman navigating breast cancer. 

Below is sample language you can use to add National Breast Cancer Foundation as a primary or contingent beneficiary to your will or trust. We encourage you to work with your attorney or financial advisor when making any changes or deciding on your course of action.

Sample Language

For an unrestricted gift that allows National Breast Cancer Foundation to determine the best use for funds based on the most pressing needs, use the following language for your will and/or trust:

“I give to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit corporation currently located at 7460 Warren Parkway Suite 150, Frisco, TX 75034, or its successor thereto, _________ [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted charitable use and purpose.”

To designate your provision for a particular program, use the following language for your will and/or trust:

“I give to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit corporation currently located at 7460 Warren Parkway Suite 150, Frisco, TX 75034, or its successor thereto, _________ [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property]. This gift should be used for (state purpose) if and so long as National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. determines that the need exists. If National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. shall determine at the outset or at a later time that the need does not exist, or no longer exists or for some reason it is not possible (or prudent) to administer my gift as originally intended, then National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. may, in its sole and uncontrolled discretion, direct the use of my bequest for a purpose related as closely as possible to that stated above.”
