Expert Advice: Prepare to Retire with a Gift Annuity
Jeremy Arkin, Director of Gift Planning, explains
September 15, 2014 | by Anne Bradley
Our Director of Gift Planning, Jeremy Arkin, was recently interviewed by Kiplinger’s Retirement Report for the article, Prepare to Retire with a Gift Annuity. The article focuses on the recent uptick of deferred gift annuities as a retirement tool for younger donors who want to make a charitable gift now, but don’t plan to retire immediately.
A deferred charitable gift annuity can be part of a smart retirement plan for the following reasons:
- Tax Efficient: You get a charitable tax deduction in the year you make the donation, but can delay payments until you need them
- Security: You will know to the penny how much income you will receive each year
- Capital Gains: The stock market is at record highs and you can spread your capital gains over the life of the payments (and avoid some entirely).
