How it works

You can provide now for a future gift to Berkeley by naming us owner and beneficiary of a policy insuring your life.

You make annual gifts to Berkeley in the amount of our premium payments.

When the policy matures the proceeds are paid to Berkeley, and we apply them to the program you have designated.


  • You can make a significant gift from income instead of capital.
  • Your gifts offsetting our premium payments are fully deductible.
  • You build our future financial strength.
