Bequests

One of the simplest ways to support OCRF’s future is to provide a bequest, leaving a gift for OCRF in your will. An outright bequest to OCRF is fully tax-deductible for estate-tax purposes.

Since we cannot predict future medical advances, we recommend that your bequest be for unrestricted purposes or be directed generally to research.

We’ve suggested language you may find useful in writing your will:

“I give, devise and bequeath [the sum of ____ dollars], [all or
____ percent of the rest, remainder and residue of my estate
of every kind and description (including lapsed legacies and
devises)] to The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, Inc. 14
Pennsylvania Plaza, Suite 1710, New York, New York, 10122,
EIN 13-3806788 for its general purposes.”

 

If you have questions, call us at 212.268.1002. Please consult your attorney and/or financial advisor for specific information.


Please Let Us Know

If you’re planning to make the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund one of your beneficiaries, we encourage you to tell us now. It gives us the opportunity to recognize and thank you for your generosity. Requests for anonymity are respected.
