Gifts of Insurance

A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy to The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide for minor children and they are now financially independent adults.

Benefits of gifts of life insurance

  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction
  • If The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston retains the policy to maturity, you can receive additional tax deductions by making annual gifts so that we can pay the premiums
  • If The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston cashes in the policy, you will be able to see firsthand how your gift supports our charitable work
  • If we retain the policy to maturity, or you name us as a beneficiary, once the policy matures, the proceeds of your policy will be paid to our organization so that we can use the proceeds to further our charitable work
