The gifts described below allow you to give to Brooklyn College Foundation while generating income for yourself and your family.
A charitable gift annuity is a way to make a gift to Brooklyn College Foundation, receive income for yourself or others, and be entitled to a current income tax deduction for a portion of the assets given to fund the gift annuity. The new – and higher – gift annuity rates announced are generating great interest from our supporters.
A deferred charitable gift annuity provides fixed payments to you for life in exchange for your gift of cash or securities. The payments start on a date you choose that is at least one year after you make the gift. If you are doing retirement income planning the new – and higher – annuity rates may make the deferred gift annuity the answer to your charitable and financial planning goals.
Do you want to benefit from the tax savings that result from supporting Brooklyn College Foundation? A trust can reduce or even eliminate any gift or estate tax that might otherwise be due in your charitable donation to the Brooklyn College Foundation.
A charitable remainder unitrust can help you maintain or increase your income while making a significant gift to Brooklyn College Foundation. If your unitrust grows, your payments will grow too, providing a hedge against inflation.
