Charitable Gift Annuity

Charitable Gift Annuities are a nice option for donors older lthan 55 who want to make a lasting contribution while they also receive a guaranteed rate of return. 

The scholarship support that is available through a Charitable Gift Annuity begins after the donor's lifetime. Until then, the income from the gift is available for personal use. Many donors say they choose this deferred gift because it offers a rate of return that is hard to find anywhere else. The return is also guranteed, regardless of economic fluctuations, and it offers a tremendous tax benefit. This giving option offers the security of guaranteed fixed-income now, while providing future support to Aims students for generations to come. 

This is accomplished with a Charitable Gift Annuity and the details are as follows:

Life Estate

Occasionally, donors are interested in an immediate charitable gift deduction of their personal residence but they are not ready to leave their home. In this case, a donor may transfer their personal residence, vacation home or farm to Aims. Their obligation includes upkeep. In return, the donor can continue to live on the property and qualify for a partial gift deduction. Aims liquidates the property following a term of years. Once sold, the property will fund scholarships or programs as designated by the donor.
