Gift Types

Charitable Remainder Unitrust
This trust pays a fixed percentage of its value to you or others for life or a term of years. Payments may increase (or decrease) from year to year depending on investment performance.

Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust
This form of trust pays a fixed dollar amount to you or others for life or a term of years.

Charitable Gift Annuity
A gift annuity is a contract providing you or others with secure, fixed payments.  Annuity rates are based on the ages of one or two annuitants, who must be at least 65 years of age (or 55 for a deferred gift annuity).

Pooled Income Fund
Your gift is combined in a fund with gifts from other Princeton donors. You or others you name receive your gift's share of the actual interest and dividend income the fund earns each year for life.
