How It Works

  • You transfer ownership of a paid-up life insurance policy to Yale.

  • Yale cashes the policy now, or maintains it and receives the death benefit later.


  • You receive gift credit and an immediate income tax deduction for the cash surrender value of the policy.
  • You gain the satisfaction of making a significant gift to Yale without adversely affecting your cash flow.
