Turn Your Generosity Into Lifetime Income
Charitable Gift Annuities
When you are looking for ways to help Stanford University School of Medicine or Stanford Health Care with our mission, you shouldn't feel like you are choosing between your philanthropic goals and financial security. One gift that allows you to support the School of Medicine or Stanford Health Care's work while receiving fixed payments for life is a charitable gift annuity.
Not only does this gift provide you with regular payments and allow us to further our work, but when you create a charitable gift annuity with the School of Medicine or Stanford Health Care you can receive a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.
Delay Your Payments
If you don't need your payments immediately, you can set up a deferred gift annuity. This allows you to delay receiving payments until a later date—such as when you reach retirement. To learn more, view and download the FREE guide Plan for Retirement With a Deferred Gift Annuity.Download Brochure
Check Out This Potential Scenario
Say that Justin, 66, and Mary, 65, want to make a contribution to the School of Medicine or Stanford Health Care, but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $20,000 charitable gift annuity with the School of Medicine or Stanford Health Care.
Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.5 percent, which means that they will receive $900 each year for the remainder of their lives. They're also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $6,129* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.
*Based on annual payments and a 3.2 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances and the current annuity rates.
