You may have an established career and are saving for anticipated expenses such as college tuition, care of parents, and your retirement. Build planned gifts into your long-term plans as part of the solution. You may also have a portfolio of investments that have appreciated—which are great to use for charitable gifts!
You’re creating a gift that will pay you back when you need it—such as during retirement. You can take a larger income tax deduction now—and increase future payments—by deferring those payments until a later date.
By donating cash or stock, you can receive a fixed payment from Duke for the rest of your lifetime. After you’ve passed away, the remainder of your gift will be used to support purposes you care about at Duke.
