Add to Your Retirement and Help Us
The following charitable options can reduce your taxes, add to your retirement income and help you support Desert Botanical Garden. Take note: all of the gift vehicles listed here can be funded with cash or marketable securities, so you don't necessarily have to worry about feeling the effects of giving straight-out-of-pocket.
- Charitable Gift Annuity. When you agree to make an irrevocable donation to Desert Botanical Garden, we'll make immediate, fixed payments to you and one other person, if you choose, for life. What's left of your gift after your lifetime helps support our mission.

- Deferred Charitable Gift Annuity. When you set up a gift annuity today and delay the start date of your payments, you can increase the rate you receive at a future time that you choose. Plus, you still receive an immediate income tax deduction.
- Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust. You can receive fixed income for the rest of your life from a trust you create. After the trust term is up, the remaining portion of the gift helps support Desert Botanical Garden. Plus, you'll reduce or eliminate taxes.
Punch the numbers to see your personal benefits.
- Charitable Remainder Unitrust. You create a trust and choose the percentage of the trust assets that you would like to receive. Your payments, usually distributed annually, will continue for the rest of your life or a fixed period of time up to 20 years. The amount of income varies each year based on the annual value of the trust.
