Cash is the most common form for charitable gifts. Other types of gifts include securities, savings and retirement accounts, real estate, and life insurance.
There are estate and tax benefits for each, and one may be more appropriate to your particular situation. A discussion with an Estate or Financial Planner will help you sort out your options.
Charitable Gift Annuities
You may make a gift to the Temple and receive fixed and guaranteed annuity payments for the rest of your life, and for the life of a second person, if desired. Payout rates are very attractive and a portion of the income will be free from federal income tax.
If you work for a company with a matching gift program, your gift could be increased substantially by the company’s “match,” which sometimes is based on a ratio as high as 10 – 1.
