A simple way to provide a future gift is to name PATH as a first, second, or contingent beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Your estate will receive a tax deduction for insurance proceeds that pass to PATH on your death. You also may name PATH as both owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy. This irrevocable gift would entitle you to a tax deduction in the year you make your gift. If your policy is not yet fully paid, you may make tax-deductible contributions to PATH to cover future premium payments. Such a gift can be a cost-effective way to make a significant contribution to PATH.

We encourage you to talk with your legal and tax advisors about whether this is a good option for you. If you’re considering a gift restricted to a particular health need or region, please consult with PATH as well, so that we can make sure your wishes are honored.

If you have already established a future gift to PATH, please let us know so that we can thank you—or use this confidential reply form to tell us about your gift.
