Life Insurance Gifts

A gift of life insurance may be made in one of three ways:

  • Donate a fully paid policy, naming the Shakespeare Theatre Company the irrevocable owner and beneficiary.  The donor is entitled to an income tax deduction for an amount equal to the cash value of the policy
  • Donate a policy on which premiums are still owing, naming the Shakespeare Theatre Company the irrevocable owner and beneficiary.  The donor is entitled to an income tax deduction for an amount equivalent to the cash value of the policy and for any additional gifts to fund premium payments
  • Purchase a new policy, naming the Shakespeare Theatre Company the irrevocable owner and beneficiary.  You are entitled to an income tax deduction for gifts made to the Shakespeare Theatre Company that are designated for premium payments.
