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, which provide a fixed income for life
  • Charitable Remainder Unitrusts, which make variable payments, payments that fluctuate with the value of the trust
  • Charitable Remainder Annuity Trusts, which like a charitable gift annuity, provide a fixed incomebut the tax treatment of the payments may be better for donors giving highly appreciated assets
  • Pooled Income Fund, which combines gifts from many donors into a common investment pool with income distributed on a pro-rata basis
