A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a contribute to your fund with Jewish Community Foundation, Inc.. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider gifting the policy to JCF to build your named 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 Jewish Community Foundation, Inc. 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 us as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy. We would like to thank you and recognize you for your gift, as well as work with you to establish an agreement to ensure the continuity of your philanthropic wishes.
You can also designate Jewish Community Foundation, Inc. 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.
