Gift of Life Insurance:
There are several ways to give the gift of life insurance:

Following this, tax receipts will be given to you for any insurance premiums you pay thereafter as well as for the market value of the policy, including the interests and other accumulated dividends.

Make Pillars Trust the irrevocable beneficiary of a new life insurance policy: This also has key benefits. You will receive tax receipts for the yearly insurance premium paid. Pillars Trust will also be able to leverage your gift through the receiving of significantly more than your cumulative premiums paid upon your passing.

Make Pillars Trust the beneficiary of your death insurance: You to maintain ownership of the policy and the tax receipt for the premiums paid will be given to your estate – greatly benefiting them with major savings in income tax.

Bequeath to Pillars Trust the equivalent of the death benefit of your life insurance policy: At your passing, your heirs will inherit the death benefit through a tax receipt that will be issued for the amount of your bequest.

Bequest:
Put Pillars Trust in your will! By making a charitable bequest, it doesn’t cost you anything in the present and allows you to continue a legacy after your death. It is possible to reduce taxes due at death, and a bequest can be of anything! In making a will, you get the ultimate decision on where your assets go upon your death. Plus, you can change the terms of your will at any time.
