    Gifts of Insurance

    A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to University of Charleston. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy to University of Charleston. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide for minor children and they are now financially independent adults.

    Benefits of gifts of life insurance

    • Receive a charitable income tax deduction
    • If University of Charleston retains the policy to maturity, you can receive additional tax deductions by making annual gifts so that we can pay the premiums
    • If University of Charleston cashes in the policy, you will be able to see firsthand how your gift supports our charitable work
    • If we retain the policy to maturity, or you name us as a beneficiary, once the policy matures, the proceeds of your policy will be paid to our organization so that we can use the proceeds to further our charitable work

    How to make a gift of life insurance

    To make a gift of life insurance, please contact your life insurance provider, request a beneficiary designation form from the insurer and include University of Charleston as the beneficiary of your policy.
