Legacy gifts are a way of leaving behind a lasting impact upon a cause or organisation close to the heart when assets are fully executed upon a donor’s passing.
Through the NCCS Legacy Giving Programme, donors can pledge their properties, Central Provident Fund (CPF), savings or life insurance policies to our two funds, NCCS Cancer Fund or NCC Research Fund in their Will.
Benefits of Making a Will
Contrary to what many people think, not all money and possessions may be transferred automatically to a spouse or relatives after their death. Without a Will, the Government will decide how your estate or wealth is to be divided, which can cause unnecessary anxiety and “red tape” for your loved ones.
Making a Will can bring great satisfaction and peace of mind, as you know your family will be provided for, and any charitable wishes will be honoured. Your legal advisor can make amendments to your Will to include NCCS as a beneficiary, if you so desire.
Why is Legacy Giving Important?
Legacy gifts to NCCS are very meaningful. They provide long-term support that is crucial in helping us to meet our future challenges and ensures sustainability of our patient support initiatives and research programmes.
