Life insurance donation
Naming the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy is a way to make a considerable donation by spending only a fraction of the amount. You pay the annual premiums, and on your death, the Foundation receives the insured capital. Tax credits are granted every year to you or to your estate on your death, depending on the method chosen:
- You remain the owner of the life insurance policy
- The CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation becomes the owner of the life insurance policy
- You surrender an existing life insurance policy
