Be the Cornerstone

Conquering the fear of cancer is an audacious goal. You have the opportunity to build a future free from the fear of cancer worldwide by funding breakthrough cancer research and sharing cutting-edge knowledge. Perhaps you've already included the Conquer Cancer Foundation in your estate plan or you're considering doing so. By simply designating the Conquer Cancer Foundation as a beneficiary of your estate, you will be leaving a legacy that builds the future of cancer research. Typical bequest language is:

"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, VA 22314 (Federal Tax ID: 31-1667995), to be used for its general purposes."

Cancer touches almost every person's life. Our goal is to remove the fear of a cancer diagnosis, both for the patient and for their family and friends. We need your help to guarantee that the necessary resources will be available well into the future. Your commitment to honor the Conquer Cancer Foundation as a beneficiary in your estate planning helps to build a strong future of cancer research and resources.
