An investment in Rutgers with benefits for you
Through a planned gift, you can have a meaningful, long-term impact on Rutgers’ goals and interests while taking steps to benefit your own financial situation. Because of advantageous tax laws that provide powerful incentives to support charities, it is possible to reduce or eliminate federal and state taxes owed on the value of a gift.
You can also make a gift to the university that pays you income for life, with a rate of return that’s guaranteed, regardless of market fluctuations. And you can donate real estate, stocks and bonds, mutual funds, life insurance, personal property, and other noncash assets, so you don’t need large cash reserves to make a big difference for Rutgers.
Our professional goal is to help you meet your philanthropic goal in the way that works best for you.
- Income-Producing Gifts can provide you and/or your loved ones with income for the duration of your lives or for a term of years.
- Charitable Lead Trusts can be used to provide an inheritance to loved ones at a minimal tax cost.
- Bequests can allow you to make a more substantial gift than you might otherwise imagine possible.
- Noncash Assets can be turned into gifts with immediate tax benefits.
