You can give an old life insurance policy new life with a donation to the Goodwin House Foundation. Donors can either name the Goodwin House Foundation as a beneficiary or transfer ownership of an existing policy. With a policy transfer, the Foundation becomes both the owner and beneficiary, and the donor takes a charitable deduction for the cash value of the policy at the time of the gift. The donor can also designate how the gift is to be used.
You can support the Goodwin House Foundation in several ways with a gift of personal property.

Please note that the Foundation makes no commitment to keep a work of art, furniture or personal property in perpetuity.
Donors can make gifts to the Foundation through bequests in wills or testamentary trusts. This requires a simple designation in the document and does not affect cash flow during the donor’s lifetime.
For those considering this option, be sure to include the following within your bequest: Goodwin House Foundation (Tax ID: 54-1549749), a qualified charity under the Internal Revenue Code, Sections 170(c) and 2055(a) as amended, to be used for its general charitable purposes and the Bequest Statement Form.
All donors who make gifts through bequests in their wills will be included in the Bishop Chilton Society, the Foundation’s Gift Society for planned gifts. Members of the Bishop Chilton Society are included in the Goodwin House Annual Report.
Charitable Gift Annuities (CGA) and Charitable Trusts offer a win-win for donors and Goodwin House Foundation. The donor gives a donation of cash or transfers assets to the Foundation in exchange for long-term fixed income, charitable deductions and other possible tax benefits. Speak with your financial advisor to learn if this would be a good fit for you, or contact the Foundation to learn more about the process and benefits.
