Giving and Generating Income
Planned giving is a great way to support Williams while generating income for yourself and your family. Learn how these gifts allow you to achieve both of these goals.
A charitable gift annuity provides fixed payments to you or others you name for life in exchange for your gift of cash or securities. If you are looking for a secure stream of income and/or want to move some assets out of a potentially uncertain market, this may be a perfect fit for you.
A deferred gift annuity provides fixed payments to you or others you name for life in exchange for your gift of cash or securities. The payments start on a date you choose that is at least one year after you make the gift. If you are doing retirement income planning the current rates may make the deferred gift annuity the answer to your charitable and financial planning goals.
A charitable remainder annuity trust can provide a dependable income for life while making a significant gift to Williams College.
A charitable remainder unitrust can help you maintain or increase your income while making a significant gift to Williams College. The charitable remainder unitrust is highly flexible. You can easily make gifts of assets that are not easily converted to cash using the unitrust. If your unitrust grows, your payments will grow too, providing a potential hedge against inflation.
A flip unitrust can be an excellent way for you to give an asset that may take time to sell and receive substantial payments for life once the flip unitrust sells your asset. You might also be interested in using a flip unitrust to make a gift now that will supplement your income in the future, such as when you retire.
A pooled income fund is a trust that is established and maintained by Williams. Your gift of cash or securities is combined with other gifts in the fund and as the fund grows, you receive your share of fund income for life.
