CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITY: It is possible to make a donation of cash or securities to establish a Charitable Gift Annuity to provide you or another individual with guaranteed, partially tax-free income for life.
CHARITABLE REMAINDER TRUST: A Charitable Remainder Trust provides an individual with income for either life or a term up to 20 years from the date the gift is made. When the trust terminates, the Charitable Foundation receives the trust’s principal.
CHARITABLE LEAD TRUST: A Charitable Lead Trust provides the Charitable Foundation with a steady income for a term of years or the life of an individual. When the trust terminates, the donor’s designated heirs will receive the trust’s appreciated principal.
