Gifts of Life Insurance

Gift of Life Insurance Diagram

How It Works

  • You transfer ownership of a paid-up life insurance policy to Diocese of Syracuse.
  • The Diocese elects to cash in the policy now or hold it.
  • Consider designating and donating. It's simple.


  • Make a wise investment in God's work with an asset you no longer need.
  • Receive an income tax deduction equal to the cash surrender value of the policy.
  • You may be able to use the cash value of your policy to fund a gift that delivers income, such as a deferred gift annuity.
