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 thinking about planning a will, 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.



Robing and Nate
“These researchers and these doctors want it just as much as the parents do. And when they are given a small chunk of extra funding, they can run for miles with it.”
- Robin, Nate's mom

Nate was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at 16.

Planned giving for everyone
Planned giving is for everyone regardless of age or assets.

It doesn’t matter what your income is, how old you are, or what assets you have: Anyone can make a planned gift. A planned gift doesn’t have to cost a cent right now. It is simply a plan for what you leave behind in the future, and it can help you make a larger gift than you could make during your lifetime.

Powerful research advancements
An impactful legacy rooted in powerful research advancements.

Through a planned gift to CCRF, your generosity can truly change lives — from helping a 6-year-old reach their first day of Kindergarten to helping a scientist make a lifesaving breakthrough — all by funding research.

Sue Hodder
A lasting impact - Sue Hodder

After Sue was diagnosed with cancer, she named CCRF as the beneficiary of her memorial fund. When Sue passed away, her family created the CCRF/Suzanne Holmes Hodder Chair in Pediatric Cancer Research at the University of Minnesota. Now held by Logan Spector, PhD, the Chair helps fund his research team. They study epidemiology; the reasons why some kids get cancer.

Lori and George Olson
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!”
— George and Lori Olson
