You too can leave a very important legacy for humanity

By bequeathing in favour of the Fundación del Sector Público Estatal Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncológicas Carlos III (F.S.P CNIO) – Spain’s National Cancer Research Centre, recognised among the best in the world – you are contributing to the investigation of new treatments and drugs that cure cancer and new ways of early diagnosis for a disease that continues to be one of the leading causes of death in the world.

With your joint will you can contribute beyond your life to the health and well-being of people, without harming the rights of your legitimate heirs. You can have a great impact on people’s lives by further enabling the cancer research we do at the F.S.P CNIO, which ranges from the basic research of molecular mechanisms, to metastasis, or clinical research that enables the discoveries of our laboratories to reach patients as quickly as possible.

The Fundación del Sector Público Estatal Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncológicas Carlos III (F.S.P CNIO) is a foundation that is exempt from paying inheritance and donation taxes as it is governed by Law 49/2002, of December 23, regarding the tax regime of non-profit and non-profit entities and tax incentives for patronage. In other words, 100% of your inheritance or legacy will go entirely to cancer research.

If you want to formalize your greatest act of solidarity in favour of cancer research, please contact us and we will provide you with the necessary information to go to the notary.

We are at your disposal to clarify any questions by phone on 91 732 8000 or you can email us at: filantropia@cnio.es. We are available to speak to you in English or Spanish.
