Planned Giving

Leave a legacy as a changemaker for cancer patients


We all want to know that during our lifetimes, we can make decisions that will lead to a lasting impact. Creating a will allows you to support the people and causes that mean the most to you, without affecting your finances during your lifetime.

Including the Patient Empowerment Network in your will ensures cancer patients and their care partners will continue to receive free access to knowledge and tools that will put them in control of their healthcare journey, and help them achieve the best possible outcome.

The following language may assist you when creating your will. If you are updating your will, but not completely rewriting it, see our sample language for amendments (also called codicils) here.
