Gift of Life Insurance

Life insurance is more than a source of protection for your family's financial future, it is a flexible, versatile asset that can be used to leave your legacy at Case Western Reserve University.

How it Works: You can name Case Western Reserve as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or name the university as the policy owner through an irrevocable gift. Both of these scenarios offer specific tax advantages. Future premium payments are deductible only if you transfer ownership of the policy to the university.

Special provisions can be made to protect your spouse or children, and a variety of assets can be used to create an income stream that can cover the cost of premiums.
