Elimination of capital gains tax that would ordinarily become due if you had sold the appreciated securities on the open market and donated the proceeds of the sale to the Future Angels.

Life Insurance, IRAs or Retirement Funds Beneficiary Designations
A gift of life insurance allows someone to contribute a previously acquired policy that they may no longer need for its original purpose, and realize its tax benefits. One option is to name the Future Angels as a named beneficiary of a life insurance policy, company pension plan or a private plan, such as an IRA, Keogh, or tax-sheltered annuity. There is also the option of listing the Future Angels as just a percentage or lump sum beneficiary of the aforementioned benefits. Gifting of pension plan benefits can help you avoid both income and estate taxes.
