Did you know that you can name the Foundation a full or partial beneficiary of your life insurance policy? Sometimes life insurance policies outlive their original goal; providing for family when children are young is a common impetus for carrying a policy.
Or what if you would like to give more than your retirement plans suggest you will be able to? You can take out a life insurance policy for the sole purpose of supporting the Foundation or a fund of the Foundation. Depending on your income bracket and tax situation, you may be able to write the premiums off too.
When talking to your advisor about your charitable goals, ask how the gift of life insurance can be part of your plan.
