Gifts of Life Insurance

Many people find gifts of life insurance an affordable way to support the University Hospital Foundation and you will enjoy the tax benefits in your lifetime. Contact us to learn more or talk to your financial planner.

Gifts of Life Insurance

A gift of life insurance, whether it’s an existing policy or a new one, can turn your small monthly premiums into a significant donation. The insurance benefit will eventually be paid directly to the University Hospital Foundation and is separate from your estate, so there are no administrative costs or probate fees. 

Working with your financial planner, you can set up a life insurance gift by transferring ownership of an existing policy, creating a new one or changing the beneficiary to the University Hospital Foundation. Your gift will support the future of healthcare in Alberta, while you enjoy the tax benefits in your lifetime.
