Charitable gift of a Life Insurance Policy

You can donate a paid-up policy, or even a policy on which you are still paying premiums, to a charity like Early Childhood Alliance.

Can a life insurance beneficiary be a charity?

You can name a charity such as Early Childhood Alliance as a beneficiary to your life insurance policy. You can also name more than one beneficiary and divide the amount among multiple individuals or charities.

Can I donate my life insurance policy to charity?

If you have a life insurance policy that you no longer need because of a change in your life circumstances, you can give a paid-up policy to Early Childhood Alliance, or even a policy on which you are still paying premiums.

How do I donate a life insurance policy?

There are two simple ways to set up a gift of life insurance:

  • You can irrevocably designate Early Childhood Alliance as the owner and beneficiary of your life insurance policy. By doing so, you may be entitled to a generous charitable income tax deduction.
  • You can name Early Childhood Alliance as an irrevocable beneficiary but retain ownership of the policy itself. Call or write to your insurance company to request a form to make this change of beneficiary.
