Ways of Giving - Income Producing Plans
Income producing gift plans can allow you to make a gift to the Pasadena City College Foundation and provide income for yourself or your beneficiaries at the same time. These plans allow you to take advantage of government tax laws that are designed to encourage philanthropy. They offer current income tax deductions and may provide an opportunity to avoid or reduce capital gains tax on assets that have substantially appreciated. Plans can also be used to minimize estate taxes.
- Charitable Gift Annuities: Charitable gift
annuities provide a way to make meaningful gifts while enjoying
guaranteed income and tax benefits, thus also enhancing your financial
well being. Under the terms of a gift annuity, you make a charitable
gift of cash or other property and then receive fixed payments
for your life and/or others. You are entitled to an income tax
deduction in the year of your gift and, for a period of time,
a portion of each payment may be free of income tax or taxed at
capital gain tax rates that are lower than tax rates on other
- Charitable Trusts: When you prefer an income that varies with market conditions. A charitable remainder trust allows you to make a major gift, typically of real estate or securities, while continuing to receive the income from your gift during your lifetime. During the year you establish the trust, you receive a charitable income tax deduction based on the current value of the asset less the value of the income interest, not the cost basis (what you have actually invested).
