    An Innovative Approach to Generate Cash Gifts


    Charitable organizations are using an innovative approach to generate cash gifts from senior clients who currently own life insurance, including term insurance, they no longer want or need. Life insurance has present value above and beyond cash surrender value and can be appraised and valued, like any other asset, for fair market value. The policy can be sold to a licensed institutional buyer for cash and the policy owner can then use the funds in any way they wish – including donation of all or a portion of the cash proceeds to charity.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Discover how the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is driving substantial gifts of cash from affluent senior life policy owners.
    • Learn how to leverage business term insurance, which is generally lapsed without ever being appraised for fair market value, thereby leaving six to seven figures on the table that could have been donated to charity.
    • Identify a solution that allows you to generate cash from previously donated life insurance policies that have become too expensive to maintain.

    About the Speaker

    Jonathan Ackerman, Esq.
    The Law Office of Jonathan Ackerman


    For the past 35 years, Jonathan has developed considerable experience in the areas of tax-exempt organizations, charitable gift planning, estate planning and estate administration, federal and state taxation, IRS practice and procedure, real estate and business formations and transactions.

    Jonathan represents donors and tax-exempt organizations in Maryland and the District of Columbia, but he also represents individuals, families, and charitable organizations on a national basis for federal tax matters. His advice is often sought by families (and their advisors) who desire to integrate philanthropy into their estate planning, and by charitable organizations with respect to contributions and other funding opportunities, such as assisting charities in accepting gifts of sophisticated assets or through sophisticated gift planning vehicles.

    Jonathan was the 2002 President of the National Committee on Planned Giving now known as the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (NCGP) and was a member of the NCPG Board of Directors. He recently served on the  Board of Directors and, at that time, was a Co-Government Relations Advisor to the Board. Locally, he was a President and Director of the Chesapeake Planned Giving Council and served on the Ad Hoc Committee on Ethics and Accountability in the Nonprofit Sector for the Maryland Association of Nonprofit Organizations. He has worked extensively on a pro bono and volunteer basis with various charities.
