Retaining Income

Did you know that you can make a gift to The University of Alabama and receive income from that gift? Here are ways to donate gifts that provide income back to you.

A charitable gift annuity is a simple contract between you and the Capstone Foundation at The University of Alabama. You make a gift of cash or securities to UA, and in return The University of Alabama agrees to pay you and/or another person a specific amount for the rest of your life or lives. Payments may be made annually, quarterly or monthly to fit your preference. Setting up a gift annuity provides an opportunity to diversify your portfolio, produce income for yourself, and support UA in the long term.

A charitable remainder trust is another popular tool to unlock income and support UA and is often funded with real estate or other non-income producing assets. A charitable remainder trust provides income to you for a specific purpose, such as retirement or educational expenses, for your life or a set period of time. At the end of that specified time, the trust balance becomes a charitable gift to UA.
