Designate the AACR as the Beneficiary of a Life Insurance Policy
A life insurance policy may provide a way for you to make a much larger contribution to cancer research than you ever thought possible. As your life evolves, so may your need for life insurance. You may now be in a position to:
- Name the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) as the recipient of all or part of the proceeds of a life insurance policy that is no longer needed for family protection.
- Contribute a paid-up policy during your lifetime, resulting in a charitable deduction for an amount approximately equal to your policy’s cash surrender value.
- Depending on state law, purchase a new life insurance policy in which you name the AACR as owner and beneficiary or co-beneficiary.
You can make significant impact by naming the AACR as the beneficiary or contingent beneficiary of your policy. Simply contact your insurance agent to request a change of beneficiary form.
Please notify us of your planned gift so that we may express our gratitude and enroll you in the Dr. Bayard D. Clarkson Legacy Society.
