Charitable Gift Annuity

Gifts That Pay You Income

There's a way for you to support The Juilliard School and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a charitable gift annuity.

This type of donation can provide you with regular payments and can help Juilliard to train the next generation of performing artists. You can also receive a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction. Your payments depend on your age, and are set at the time of the donation.

Gifts That Pay

If you are younger than 65, or don't need your payments immediately, you can set up a deferred gift annuity, which allows you to delay receiving payments until a later date. To learn more, view and download the FREE guide Plan for Retirement With a Deferred Gift Annuity.

An Example of How It Works

Couple smiling Mary, who is 82, wants to make a contribution to Juilliard, but also wants to ensure that she has a dependable income. She establishes a $25,000 charitable gift annuity with Juilliard. Based on her age, she will receive a payment rate of 7.2 percent, which means that she will receive $1,800 each year for the remainder of her life. She is also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $13,148* when she itemizes. Finally, she knows that after her lifetime, the remaining amount will be used to support the future of the performing arts at Juilliard.

*Based on quarterly payments and a 2.4 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions vary based on income earned.

A donor advised fund is an account that you set up but which is managed by a nonprofit organization. You contribute to the account, which grows tax-free. You can recommend how much (and how often) you want to distribute money from that fund to Juilliard or other charities. You cannot direct the gifts.

An endowed gift can create a new endowment or add to an existing endowment. The principal of the endowment is invested and a portion of the principal’s earnings are used each year to support our mission.

Tax on the growth in value of an asset—such as real estate or stock—since its original purchase.

Securities, real estate or any other property having a fair market value greater than its original purchase price.

Real estate can be a personal residence, vacation home, timeshare property, farm, commercial property or undeveloped land.

A charitable remainder trust provides you or other named individuals income each year for life or a period not exceeding 20 years from assets you give to the trust you create.

You give assets to a trust that pays our organization set payments for a number of years, which you choose. The longer the length of time, the better the potential tax savings to you. When the term is up, the remaining trust assets go to you, your family or other beneficiaries you select. This is an excellent way to transfer property to family members at a minimal cost.

You fund this type of trust with cash or appreciated assets—and may qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize. You can also make additional gifts; each one also qualifies for a tax deduction. The trust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to Juilliard as a lump sum.

Each year the trust pays you or another named individual the same dollar amount you choose at the start. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to Juilliard as a lump sum.

A beneficiary designation clearly identifies how specific assets will be distributed after your death.

A charitable gift annuity involves a simple contract between you and Juilliard where you agree to make a gift to Juilliard and we, in return, agree to pay you (and someone else, if you choose) a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life.
