With a life income gift, you donate cash, appreciated securities, or other assets, such as real estate, to The Trustees of Reservations. In exchange, The Trustees will pay you or another beneficiary income for life or a fixed term of years. Income may be fixed or variable.
The Trustees offer several life income gift options:
Charitable Gift Annuity
Ideal for the older donor seeking increased income and secure, fixed payments.
Deferred Gift Annuity
Younger donors can combine a gift to The Trustees with retirement planning.
Charitable Remainder Trust
Donate real estate, securities, or other assets and receive variable or fixed payments for life or a specified number of years – a highly flexible life income gift option.
Pooled Income Funds
Ideal for donors who hold appreciated securities and wish to avoid capital gains taxes.
