Gifts of Life Insurance

Life insurance offers you the opportunity to make a significant gift to BIDMC with tax benefits. If you have more insurance coverage than you need, you may consider giving BIDMC a paid-up policy. By transferring the ownership of your policy to BIDMC, you receive a charitable income tax deduction equal to the policy's cash surrender value or cost basis, whichever is less.

Summary of benefits:

  • Receive a federal income tax deduction in the year that you make the gift.
  • Make a more significant gift to BIDMC.
  • Receive membership in the Lunn Society, BIDMC's recognition society for individuals who have made a planned gift.
