Life Insurance
Be Forever Generous

green hands supporting globe with leavesMost people have life insurance in one form or another and many existing policies have outlived their original purpose. Yet, life insurance can be used for other purposes, including philanthropy. You can use it to make a planned gift to the IEEE Foundation, which will help sustain and expand the Foundation's ability to support the work of the IEEE.

There are two different ways you can structure a gift of life insurance to the IEEE Foundation:

Name as Beneficiary. You may have a life insurance policy that you have held for many years and you no longer need for the financial security of your heirs. By naming the IEEE Foundation as the primary or secondary beneficiary of the policy, your Estate may be able claim a charitable deduction for the proceeds passing to the IEEE Foundation.

Transfer ownership. If you have an existing paid-up policy (such as whole life or universal life) that has outlived its original purpose, consider gifting it to the IEEE Foundation. By making the IEEE Foundation the owner and beneficiary of the policy, you may be entitled to a tax deduction. (The IEEE Foundation reserves the right to cash in all donated life insurance policies.)
