Gifts of Insurance

A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to The The University of New Mexico in your estate plan. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making the UNM Foundation a beneficiary and/or owner of your policy. For example, you may have purchased a policy for yourself that you no longer need.

Benefits of gifts of life insurance

  • Avoid potential estate tax on life insurance
  • Naming a charity as a beneficiary ensures the death proceeds are not contestable by anyone contesting your estate.

How to make a gift of life insurance
