A life income gift may enable you to provide financial security now for yourself, your family or friends along with reduced income taxes and possible estate tax benefits and, at the same time, provide future support to the College.

Numerous tax and financial benefits may be realized with a "life income gift," such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust. The donor makes an irrevocable gift of cash, securities or property and receives income for him or herself (may include another beneficiary, such as a spouse) for either life or a specified term of (1 to 20) years. After their lifetime or completion of term of years, the remainder goes to support the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
