How life insurance giving works
The easiest way to make a gift with life insurance is to simply change the beneficiary to Salem Hospital.
Another strategy is to name Salem Hospital as both owner and beneficiary of a fully paid policy. With this strategy, the existing cash value becomes a charitable deduction. Salem Hospital may then keep the policy as is and receive the full benefit upon your death, or surrender the policy at the time of the gift for its cash value.
There are a variety of other strategies and considerations when contemplating the gifting of Life Insurance.

Donors who confirm a Life Insurance gifting commitment are recognized as members of our 1874 Charter Society.
