Gifts of Insurance

By designating the District Council of Madison, Inc., Society of St. Vincent de Paul as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy, you can provide a generous gift to help us meet basic needs among local families struggling with poverty. Upon your death, the Society will receive all or a portion of the proceeds of the policy. The value of your ordinary policy at the time of the gift is tax-deductible. In all matters of planned giving, please be sure to consult your attorney, tax accountant or financial advisor.

For more information, please contact Nancy Hansis, Director of Development, at (608) 442-7200, x34, or email

“After seeing the tremendous good that the Society has done for the poor in the community, I decided to make a monthly financial committment to the Society now and also am leaving a legacy gift for later.”
