Empowering members to make a difference

As a GBU Life policyholder, you become a member of the GBU Life community

Insurance from GBU Life helps you secure your future, build your legacy and also impact your community through financial donations, volunteer opportunities and fundraising resources. GBU Life membership also includes access to valuable financial benefits.

As a not-for-profit company, we emphasize value – and values. At GBU Life, social responsibility isn’t a box we check, it’s the purpose that guides our decisions.

Our members can realize their financial protection goals and give back to people and causes that matter most to them

Making an impact from day one

New members are invited to designate a charity to receive a GBU Life welcome donation.

Matching volunteer hours with donations

When a GBU member volunteers at a qualified charity, GBU donates $15 to that charity for each member hour volunteered, up to $150 each year.

Inspiring action

GBU Life helps members take their community commitment to the next level with fundraising tools, training and access to volunteers.
