An Example of How It Works
Dennis, 66, and Mary, 65, want to make a contribution to UT Knoxville but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $25,000 charitable gift annuity.
Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.5 percent, which means that they will receive $1,125 each year for the remainder of their lives. They're also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $7,661* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.
*Based on annual payments and a 3.2 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
