Legacy Society

The Children's Tumor Foundation is excited to announce the launch of our Legacy Society for planned giving. The Society was established to recognize generous individuals who have included or plan to include the Children's Tumor Foundation in their estate planning, through a bequest, life-insurance gift, or other planned gift. Legacy Society members are among the Foundation's most valued supporters and will receive acknowledgements of their membership and an annual research update outlining the impact of the Foundation's work.
