Life Insurance Plans
You may decide to include American Atheists as a beneficiary of a life insurance plan you already have. To do this, you need to contact your insurance company and formally designate American Atheists as a beneficiary of your policy.
You may have purchased a life insurance plan that is now fully paid that you no longer need. By transfering ownership and beneficiary status to American Atheists you can receive an immediate income tax deduction and make a significant gift to American Atheists.
You may wish to purchase a new insurance policy naming American Atheists as a beneficiary or co-beneficiary. This may be a convenient way of making a special gift that is much larger than its cost to you. If ownership and beneficiary status are transferred to America Atheists your annual insurance payments are tax-deductible.
