Life Income Gifts
Many donors elect to make arrangements during their lifetimes that assist The Cooper Union while enabling them to receive ongoing payments for their lives or a term of years.
Donors may also:
- Receive a generous charitable income tax deduction
- Reduce capital gains tax
- Reduce estate tax and probate costs
Of the gifts that pay you back, the Charitable Gift Annuity may be the simplest and most affordable. You transfer an amount directly to The Cooper Union, and The Cooper Union agrees to pay you or a loved one a fixed amount for life.
Charitable Remainder Trusts have a higher minimum requirement but can be tailored to meet your specific needs.
