You can name Luvin Arms as a primary or contingent life insurance beneficiary.

  • Future tax savings: Removes the asset from your potential gross taxable estate
  • Legacy of compassion: Your gift will help Luvin Arms continue our work

Another option is to donate your paid-up life insurance policy to Luvin Arms. If the policy has a cash value, Luvin Arms would have the option of either holding the policy until the maturity date or surrendering the policy to receive the policy’s current cash value. Here are some benefits to you:

  • Income tax savings: You’re entitled to a current income tax deduction
  • Future tax savings: Removes the asset from your potential gross taxable estate
  • Legacy of compassion: Your gift will help Luvin Arms continue our work

If you wish your bequest to be used for a specific purpose, we would be happy to talk with you confidentially about your plans. Our goal is to be sure that your legacy is carried out exactly as you intend.
