By leaving a gift in your Will, you can help to change the future for women with ovarian cancer. 

Ovarian cancer can be devastating, and over 7,000 women are diagnosed every year in the UK. In recent years there has been a worrying decline in the UK’s spend on ovarian cancer research, and survival from ovarian cancer is much worse than for many other cancers, due to late diagnosis and a lack of effective treatment options. We are determined to change this.

How your legacy gift can make the greatest difference

Our Ambassador, Sarah Greene

"A gift in your Will is one of the greatest gifts you can give."

We are the UK's leading ovarian cancer charity improving earlier diagnosis, providing much needed support for women and funding research to find new treatments. Your legacy gift will train more GPs, provide expert advice, information and support, and fund important research that will become part of medical practice.

How to leave a legacy gift in your Will

No matter how big or how small, every gift we receive from Wills helps to save lives. After remembering your loved ones you can leave a gift to Target Ovarian Cancer as a residuary (percentage of your estate), pecuniary (fixed sum) or specific (eg property, jewellery or shares) gift. Your kind gift will be gratefully received and will help to change the future for women with ovarian cancer.  

If you have an existing Will, you can still include a gift to Target Ovarian Cancer with a Codicil form which you can take to your solicitor. There's no tax payable on a gift to charity in your Will and it could reduce the total amount of your estate that might be liable for Inheritance Tax.  

We always recommend you contact a solicitor before writing your Will, even if your bequests are relatively simple. You can find a local solicitor through the Law Society.

Our charity number is 1125038 (England and Wales) SC042920 Scotland. Registered address 2 Angel Gate, London, EC1V 2PT. You will need this information to include Target Ovarian Cancer in your Will.

If you have any questions please contact our team on 020 7923 5474 or by email legacy@targetovariancancer.org.uk. We are unable to give legal advice, but we can answer any questions you may have about the charity. Please do let us know if you are thinking about leaving a gift in your Will to us so we can show you the difference you will make and the legacy you will leave.
