Life insurance allows you to make a significant gift even if your means are limited today.
Here are some ways that you can turn your policy into charitable support for Hadassah:
- If you would like to make a future gift to Hadassah while retaining ownership of your life insurance policy, you can name Hadassah as the beneficiary of all or part of the death benefits and keep the right to change the beneficiary designation. This type of gift gives you the opportunity to make a significant future gift to Hadassah and the flexibility to change your mind at any time.
- You may have taken out a policy years ago to provide for your family should something happen to you or your spouse, but the original purpose for your policy no longer applies. If you transfer ownership of the policy to Hadassah and name Hadassah as the beneficiary, you may receive an immediate income tax charitable deduction and may reduce your future estate tax liability. If the policy is in premium-paying mode, you may receive additional tax benefits when you make annual gifts to Hadassah to cover the premium payments. When the policy matures, the proceeds are paid to Hadassah. You may be able to leave a gift to Hadassah far in excess of what you may have thought possible.
- Even greater leverage is possible when two donors, usually spouses, purchase a two-life second-to-die policy. Since the policy pays only after both people have passed on, a future gift to us costs even less.
