"It was an easy decision to make," recalls Helen of donating paid-up life insurance to Youth Services by naming the organization as owner and beneficiary, which allowed her to claim a charitable income tax deduction for the surrender value of her policy. "The asset was there and not needed anymore. Youth Services' mission is very important to me, so what better way to use the policy than to support the community?"
