Your Act of Generosity,
With planned giving, you can provide long-lasting support for The Salvation Army in your local community, while enjoying financial benefits for yourself.
A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to The Salvation Army. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy to The Salvation Army. 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 The Salvation Army Western Territory 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.
You can also designate The Salvation Army Western Territory 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.
