Planned Giving

Leaving a Bequest to the Breast Cancer Resource Centers

A lasting gift to provide help and hope to those diagnosed with breast cancer can be your legacy with a bequest to BCRC. Making a Legacy Gift - or "Planned Gift" - to the BCRC through your will is a simple way to support our ability to assist Central Texans in overcoming obstacles to treatment and threats to quality of life. A Legacy Gift is not dependent on the size of your assets; but rather reflects the importance you place on providing direct, one-on-one-support to members of our community who are affected by breast cancer.

A bequest to the BCRC is fully deductible for federal estate tax purposes, and there is no limit on the deduction your estate can claim. In addition, the gift is usually exempt from state inheritance taxes. Please consult with your financial planner and attorney to assure you receive the best financial advantages and that your intentions are carried out fully.

If you've already written your will, you can amend it to make a gift to BCRC without having to rewrite the entire document. Your attorney can prepare a simple document, called a codicil, which adds a new bequest to us while reaffirming the other terms of your will.

If you wish to name BCRC in your will or estate plan, we should be named as:

The Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas, a nonprofit corporation (Tax Identification # 74-2743333) , organized and existing under the laws of the Texas, with principal business address of PO Box 300040 Austin, TX 78703

If you include BCRC in your estate plans, please let us know. We would love to express our gratitude and let you know how greatly your gift is appreciated. If, however, you would rather remain anonymous, we will gladly respect your preference.
