Gifts with Life Income

What is a Life Income Gift?

Life income gifts provide income to you or your chosen beneficiary for life.  You make a gift to a life income gift vehicle, such as a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust. Then:

  • You or the named beneficiary receives income for life
  • You receive an income tax deduction for the value of the remainder interest
  • You reduce your estate by the amount of the gift, reducing your estate taxes
  • You escape or reduce capital gains taxes
  • Agnes Scott College receives a significant gift for future growth
