This structure allows you to make tax-deductible charitable contributions and retain significant control over the giving process, while providing an opportunity to start a multi-generational legacy of giving.

a life insurance policy owned by your favorite charity could result in your charitable gift becoming more valuable than an annual cash contribution of the same amount.
