If You Don't Need Extra Income Right Now...

Learn More
If you are not yet retired, a deferred charitable gift annuity may be the right charitable gift for you. You'll receive the same benefits as regular gift annuities but with considerably higher rates.

How It Works
You make the contribution to us now, securing a current income tax charitable deduction. Starting at any date you select, UC Riverside Foundation provides you with fixed payments for life. This is especially advantageous if your tax bracket is higher now than it will be later when you retire. The rate depends on your age now and your age when the payments will begin. Because payments are deferred, the rate is considerably higher than with an immediate gift annuity. Your charitable deduction is larger, too, when you choose to defer the start of your payments.

In addition, for many people, contributions to IRAs, 401(k) plans and other retirement plans are limited. The deferred payment gift annuity is a good way to provide the additional retirement income you desire.

Steve, 65, gives $10,000 to a qualified charitable organization for a deferred payment gift annuity, with payments to start at age 75. Steve is eligible for an immediate income tax charitable deduction of $5,523 (assumes annual payments and a 2.4 percent charitable midterm federal rate—deductions vary based on income earned) when he itemizes. At age 75, he will start receiving yearly payments of $780 (7.8 percent x $10,000) for the rest of his life. Of that amount, $373 is tax-free to him until he reaches his life expectancy in 12 years.
