Life Insurance – Paid-Up Policy:

Questions Donors Ask

How do I arrange a gift from my life insurance?

Donors can contact their life insurance company and request a “Change of Beneficiary/Ownership” form to designate your organization as the new owner and beneficiary of their policy.

What are the tax implications of a gift of life insurance?

If donors give their policy to your organization while they are still alive, they will receive an immediate income-tax deduction limited to the policy’s fair market value or cost basis, whichever is less. If they pay any future premiums to keep the policy active, these payments are also tax deductible.
