Gifts That Pay You Income

Donor Advised Funds

A lifetime income gift—such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust—is a wonderful solution if you wish to give to CBE in a substantial way but are concerned about having enough retirement income.

You can give cash or other property and receive steady income for the rest of your life (or a designated number of years). A lifetime income gift can also be used as a way to bless your children or other individuals in need, while providing a legacy gift for CBE.

Benefits of Lifetime Income Gifts

  • Win-win. Support CBE while securing income payments for life, or a designated number of years.
  • Eliminate hassles. Give assets you no longer need or care to manage (such as rental property or vacation homes) to benefit CBE.
  • Tax-wise. Receive an immediate income tax deduction at the time of your gift and reduce capital gains tax when funding your gift with appreciated assets.
