How It Works

  • You transfer ownership of a paid-up life insurance policy to Dutchess Land Conservancy.
  • Dutchess Land Conservancy elects to cash in the policy now or hold it.


  • Make a gift using an asset that you and your family no longer need.
  • Receive an income tax deduction equal to the cash surrender value of the policy.
