Legacy Giving: 

Life Income Gifts

A life income gift, as its name implies, allows donors to receive payments and tax benefits during their lifetime – and to make a significant gift to the SLSO. This type of gift, like many smart planned gifts, provides a charitable income tax deduction and may reduce capital gains tax and estate tax. Life income gifts include the following vehicles:

Charitable Gift Annuities

  • Deferred-payment gift annuities

Charitable remainder trusts

  • Charitable remainder unitrusts
  • Charitable remainder annuity trusts
