“It’s an exciting time for the U.S. Rugby Foundation as we step up our support of rugby through our multi-million dollar “With You” fundraising campaign,” said Brad Andrews, Chairman of the USRF. “We are equally excited to have The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company as a partner in our fundraising efforts. Penn Mutual has displayed their commitment to rugby on many fronts and we are thankful to be partnering with them now and in the future.”


At your request, the Foundation can purchase a Penn Mutual life insurance policy on your lifeusing your annual cash donations to the USRF and you still receive income tax deductions for your donations. Upon your death, the USRF will receive the proceeds and benefits of the policy, ensuring your legacy lives on.

Using life insurance may be an excellent way to donate to the U.S. Rugby Foundation. It could result in a substantial gift to the Foundation at a relatively small cost and may also provide you with charitable income tax deductions.

1“We’re pleased to support the USRF and their commitment to developing American rugby at all levels,” said Tom Harris, executive vice president of The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company. “We continue to be impressed with the values of the sport of rugby – integrity, respect, loyalty, community – values that have been part of our company since our earliest days. By working with the USRF to grow the sport and promote these very values, we hope to help leave a lasting legacy on the rugby community and impact generations to come.”
