Most people associate life insurance with protecting their family. But you can also use life insurance to give a monetary gift to a charity, church or non-profit organization that has made an impact on you and your family.
Charitable gifts of life insurance, both large and small, are a meaningful way to support organizations you care about – while making an impact and leaving a legacy long after you’re gone.
By donating with life insurance, both you and the charity you give to can enjoy benefits, including:
Any type of insurance can be used to set up a Legacy Giving plan, but permanent life insurance is the best option. WoodmenLife offers a variety of life insurance products to meet your needs, and once purchased, you can assign it2 to a charity, church or non-profit organization. You can also keep ownership and designate your charity as a beneficiary.3
The purpose of Legacy Giving is not to reduce, replace or eliminate protection for your family. The first step of any Legacy Giving plan is to protect your family’s needs, and then create a charitable giving plan that works for you.
