A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a legacy gift. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy to your parish, Catholic school or ministry endowment fund. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide for minor children and they are now financially independent adults.
To make a gift of life insurance, please contact your life insurance provider, request a beneficiary designation form from the insurer and include your parish, Catholic school or ministry endowment fund as the beneficiary of your policy.
If you have any questions about making a gift of a life insurance policy, please contact us. We would be happy to answer questions that you have.
Please let us know if you have already named your parish, Catholic school, favorite ministry or the Catholic Foundation as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy. We would like to thank you and recognize you for your gift.
You can also designate Catholic Foundation of North Georgia as a partial, full or contingent beneficiary of your life insurance policy. You will continue to own and can make use of the policy during your lifetime. Your estate may benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction.
Your deduction for the gift of life insurance will depend on whether the policy has increased in value above the premiums and whether the policy is paid up or there are remaining payments to be made.
