Contributing to a charitable annuity is a way to support causes you care about while benefitting yourself and your estate. Annuities provide a fixed lifetime payment to you. This arrangement allows the charity to benefit from a lump sum contribution from you, while you earn income from the annuity throughout your lifetime. You receive a charitable tax deduction for your contribution, and the annuity payments receive preferential tax treatment.
Gifts of Real Estate may be accepted.
Works of Art and Cultural items that may be gifted include Judaica and archival materials.
Under specified circumstances, the Jewish Foundation will accept shares of private companies in excess of $1 million.
Please consult your tax or estate planning professional to determine what is best for you.
