Ways to Give
Gift of InsurancePay modest premiums now to make a significant gift in the future.
Naming the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation as a beneficiary or owner of a new or existing life insurance policy is another cost effective way to support the future needs of our Hospital.
Your modest premium payments today can turn into a significant gift to the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation in the future. Not only are you ensuring your legacy of support continues even after your death, you also receive a sizable tax savings either now, or on your estate depending how you structure the policy.
There are several ways to make a gift of life insurance. You can:
- Establish a new policy that designates the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation as the owner and beneficiary. You can claim any and all premium payments as a charitable donation on your tax return. The Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation will issue you an annual tax receipt for the premiums paid on the policy.
- Name the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation as a beneficiary on your existing insurance policy. Your estate will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full value of the policy.
- Donate an existing life insurance policy by transferring ownership to the Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation. This entitles you to receive a tax credit for the cash surrender value of the policy at the time it is donated, along with tax receipts on any future premium payments.
- Donate a fully paid policy you no longer need. The Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation will issue you a tax receipt for the fair market value of the policy or defer the tax receipt for your estate.
