Your legacy can give kids life. We can help continue your story.

Your legacy can be one of the most transformative gifts for the future of childhood cancer research. While it can be natural to have feelings of unease when planning a will and a gift for when you're gone, it can also be exciting to explore the many significant ways you can impact kids' lives. Gift planning is a way for you to be remembered by what matters most to you. Your values, passions and generosity will continue to make an impact for children fighting cancer.

By making a planned gift, your GENEROSITY will support KIDS LIKE RIDER

A testimony - The Olsons

“We contacted CCRF about our wishes, and they made it very easy for us to put our planned gift in place. We also have peace of mind knowing that we can contact them any time to change our gift for any reason. We especially love that we were able to direct our planned gift to fund neuroblastoma research!”
