Charitable Gift Annuities

A gift annuity is an agreement whereby the donor transfers assets, such as cash or appreciated securities, to Hillel at Stanford. In return, the donor receives a guaranteed payment for the rest of the donor’s life. Gift annuities, which are income-producing gifts, are popular with donors because they receive a charitable income tax deduction, possible estate tax savings, a fixed payment for life, some tax-free income for a period of time, and possible capital gains tax savings.

IRAs and Retirement Plans

Under certain circumstances it may be advantageous to name Hillel at Stanford as the beneficiary of an Individual Retirement Account or your employer’s pension plan. Doing this may benefit you and your heirs. You retain control of these funds during your lifetime. At your death, these funds, if left to Hillel qualify for a charitable deduction and, thus, may save on estate taxes.


Gift of Life Insurance

A gift of life insurance can be made through a new or existing policy by the donor designating Hillel at Stanford as the owner and beneficiary. The donor receives an income tax deduction for the value of the policy when the gift is made and income tax deductions for future premium payments each year.
