Gifts that Provide Income
There are several ways to give that provide a triple benefit. These gifts provide an income tax deduction, offer capital gains tax avoidance and provide income to you or others for life.
Charitable Gift Annuity – A charitable gift annuity is a contract between you and the Clinic that allows you to make a gift while the Clinic agrees to pay you and/or your spouse or others a stated annual income for life. This popular giving vehicle also offers you a generous income tax deduction.
Charitable Remainder Trust – A charitable remainder trust is a trust which reserves for you, the donor, either an income for life or for a term of years. Donors may elect to receive an amount each year equal to a fixed percentage of fair market value of the trust assets, or elect to receive a set dollar amount each year.
Charitable Lead Trust – If you own assets that have appreciated in value, you may want to consider establishing a charitable lead trust. This type of trust provides the Clinic income for a specified term of years, after which the principal is returned to you, your children or other beneficiaries you designate.
