If you have a life insurance policy that you no longer need because of a change in your life circumstances, you can give a paid-up policy to FOCUS or other charity, or even a policy on which you are still paying premiums.
There are two simple ways to set up a gift of life insurance:
Most people do not use all of their retirement assets during their lifetime, and those unused assets can be used to make a gift to FOCUS.
A retirement plan can be a tax-efficient and simple way to include FOCUS in your estate plan. Because charities do not pay income taxes on the donations they receive, distributions to charities will avoid being taxed as income.
If you have a mutual fund and are looking to donate the proceeds to FOCUS, you may qualify to receive a charitable deduction. Please consult with a professional advisor to confirm.
You can donate your mutual fund either by naming Fellowship of Christian University Students as the “payable on death” beneficiary or by closing your mutual fund account and donating the proceeds.
You may also be able to donate mutual funds electronically. Download the resource below for instructions.
FOCUS is a faith-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the law. Your contribution is made with the understanding that FOCUS maintains complete control and administration over the use of the donated funds, and we do so with the sole mission of making and maturing disciples to God’s glory on our campuses.
