How Life Insurance Can Be the Ultimate Leverage Tool for Gifting


San Antonio Area Foundation


Thursday, February 15, 2018


11:30 AM - 1:30 PM


This workshop will be an important resource to donors and charitable organizations alike. It will discuss how life insurance, if done appropriately, can be a valuable tool rather than merely an expense.


Topics to be covered include: 

  • How donors can accomplish charitable goals without "disinheriting" loved ones.
  • How donors can implement new uses for "old" policies.
  • Strategies for existing life insurance policies that can benefit charities and provide potential tax benefits for the donor.
  • Strategies using life insurance that can help charities with current cash needs
  • How charities can analyze insurance contracts gifted by a donor so they don't lapse.
  • How to create a significant legacy at a relatively low cost
    • The 60 year-old who can become a $1,000,000 donor with a $13,000 annual payment.
    • The 60 year-old who became an $11,000,000 donor with a $1,000,000 gift of appreciated property. 

Lunch will be provided.
