Gifts of Insurance

You can use your life insurance policy to transform children's lives either during or after your lifetime. For example, you can:

Gift of Insurance
World Vision

Make a Gift of Life Insurance Today - Donate an "unneeded" policy

You may have an insurance policy that has outlived its originally intended purpose and you no longer believe it is necessary. For instance, a policy may have originally been purchased to protect a child who is now financially independent adult.

Did you know that you can give your life insurance policy to World Vision today and receive a charitable income tax deduction? You can also make deductible contributions to World Vision each year which we may use to pay the premiums. Our ministry receives the proceeds of your policy.


  • Preserve cash.
  • Make a significant gift that brings hope to children today.

Designate World Vision as Beneficiary of Your Life Insurance Policy

Consider naming World Vision as partial, full or contingent beneficiary of your life insurance policy. You will continue to own and can make use of the policy during your lifetime. The policy will be included in your taxable estate when you pass away, but your estate will benefit from an estate tax charitable deduction for the value of the gift to World Visions.


  • Have the flexibility to modify your bequest if your circumstances change.
  • Make a significant gift to World Vision and designate how it should be used.
  • Experience the satisfaction of knowing you can continue helping children even after you are gone.
  • Information for beneficiary form
