Life income gifts

With life income gifts, the University of Chicago invests the proceeds of your donated assets—whether in the form of cash, securities, or other appreciated property—and pays you, or designated beneficiaries, an income for life or for a specified term of years.

Income-producing planned gifts can enhance your estate by enabling you to increase your income, diversify your holdings, reduce your taxes, and avoid the cost of probate. When appreciated property is used, planned gifts can also relieve you of capital gains tax.

Your financial and charitable objectives will determine the structure of your gift. Gift planning tools are available to assist you, your legal adviser, or your financial planner in finding the best fit for your situation.

Charitable gift annuities

Plan for the future with a gift that returns fixed annual payments for life.
