Life Income Gifts

Peter Trent '54“I am grateful for the education I received, and this is a form of saying ‘thank you.’”

-- Peter Trent ’54

Through trusts, annuities, and other vehicles, you can receive payments for life—and the satisfaction that Princeton, too, will benefit. Princeton offers four types of life income gifts:

  • charitable gift annuities provides a fixed income for life.
  • charitable remainder unitrusts, which make payments that change with the market and charitable remainder annuity trusts, which provide a fixed income like a gift annuity, but the tax treatment of the payout may be preferable for donors giving highly appreciated assets.
  • charitable lead trusts, which can reduce gifts taxes when transferring wealth to your heirs while generating a charitable gift from the income and appreciation.
  • pooled income funds, which combine gifts from many donors into a common investment pool with income distributed on a pro-rata basis.
