Gifts of Life Insurance - New Policy

Gift of Life Insurance Diagram

How It Works

  • You can provide now for a future gift to Syracuse University by naming us owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
  • You make annual gifts to Syracuse University in the amount of the premium payments.
  • When the policy matures the proceeds are paid to Syracuse University, and we apply them to the program you have designated.


  • You can make a significant gift from an asset.
  • Your gifts offsetting our premium payments are fully deductible.
  • You build our future financial strength.
