An Example of How It Works
Dennis, 75, and Mary, 73, want to make a contribution to the WVU Foundation but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They fund a $25,000 charitable gift annuity with appreciated stock that they originally purchased for $10,000.
Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.5%, which means that they will receive $1,125 each year for the remainder of their lives. They are also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $10,189* 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 2.0% charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
