Every day, thousands of Australian men are fighting prostate cancer.

But you can give hope!

After you’ve taken care of your loved ones, you may wish to leave a gift in your Will to Australian Prostate Cancer. A gift of as little as 1% of your estate can make a big difference to lifesaving prostate cancer research and patient care.

For many of our supporters, leaving a gift in their Will is an opportunity to give a significant contribution to a cause they are passionate about, leaving a legacy that lasts beyond their lifetime.

Leave a living legacy

Providing a gift while you are still alive is another meaningful way to make a difference to prostate cancer research and care. For some people, they choose to do this by making a donation in honour of a loved one who sadly lost their cancer battle, or by leaving a Living Legacy.

Leaving a Living Legacy means you can see first-hand the prostate cancer research advances you are helping to make possible.

If you choose to leave a Living Legacy, we will connect you with clinicians and researchers advancing lifesaving prostate cancer research and patient care right now. Your gift will help them overcome some of the toughest challenges facing prostate cancer battlers and survivors, and their families in the future.

By making your gift in this way, there may also be a tax benefit for you. It is important to discuss this with your financial advisor or accountant.

Dr Kerri Beckmann report card


Without research, the treatment I received for prostate cancer which saved my life wouldn’t be available. I’ve decided to leave a Gift in my Will to prostate cancer research to save the lives of other men with this devastating disease.
