Giving a life insurance policy you no longer need, or funding a new policy to support Mercyhurst College, is an excellent way to make a substantial gift.

Ways to Give Life Insurance

  • Designate Mercyhurst University as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy; or
  • Give the University a fully paid life insurance policy that you no longer need; or
  • Turn in a policy for its current cash value and use the cash to make a gift to Mercyhurst University. Such a gift could be made outright or could be used to set up a life income gift for you or another beneficiary.

Please notify the University of your life insurance gift so we can acknowledge your generosity as part of the Mercyhurst O'Neil Society.
