Gifts of Insurance

A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to California Lutheran University. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed, or will no longer benefit your survivors, consider making a gift to help further our mission.

Benefits of Your Gift

Did you know that you can give your life insurance policy to California Lutheran University today and receive a charitable income tax deduction? You can then make deductible contributions to Cal Lutheran each year which we may use to pay the premiums. We benefit from the proceeds of your policy.

How to Make Your Gift

You can also designate California Lutheran University as the 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 us.

If you have any questions about making your gift of life insurance, please contact us at 805-493-3586.
