Support the Ministries You Care About with Unneeded Life Insurance

Do you have a life insurance policy that you no longer need? Why not use it to support God’s work? There are a few ways you can do this.

  • You can give your unneeded policy to us and receive an income tax deduction this year.
  • You can name our organization as a beneficiary of a policy you still want to hold on to.
  • You can transfer your policy into a charitable remainder trust or other instrument and receive lifetime income payments and tax benefits based on its value.

If you have more insurance than you need, or if the reason you bought a policy no longer exists, contact the Gift Planning & Trust Services department today and let us help you turn your unneeded life insurance into a gift that will make a difference for eternity.
