Income-Generating Gifts


Creating Income with a Gift to Barnard


There are many ways that planned gifts can benefit you, your family, and Barnard. Barnard offers a full range of income-generating gifts including Charitable Gift Annuities, the Pooled Income Fund, and Charitable Remainder Trusts. We encourage you to explore the planned gifts available through Barnard and to be in touch with us to talk about which option would work best for you based on your financial and philanthropic objectives.

And now, by setting up a new planned gift, you can generate an immediate contribution to a scholarship fund for current Barnard students. Learn more about The Bold Impact Challenge.


Creating Income For Yourself

You may be able to increase your annual income and make a donation to Barnard.

  • A Charitable Gift Annuity can offer you rates that are higher than many CDs or some stocks that pay minimal annual dividend. Rates are based on the age of the individual(s) who will receive lifetime payments, and range from 4.7% for age 65 to 9% for ages 90 and above. Learn More ››
  • Or you can diversify your income with minimal capital gains taxes by setting up a Charitable Remainder Trust. Learn More ››


Creating Income For Your Family

Whether you are interested in assuring financial security for an aging parent, providing income streams for adult children or a sibling who needs extra support, or helping to fund the education of a grandchild, Barnard can help you meet your objective through one of our income-generating gift arrangements.


Creating Income For Retirement

One of the most effective income-generating gifts for retirement planning is the Deferred Gift Annuity. You can use this arrangement to lock in a high rate of retirement income, while making an immediate, tax-deductible gift to Barnard. Learn More ››


Creating Income To Help Someone

Whether you would like to establish a retirement fund for a long-time caregiver or simply assist a friend in need, Barnard can offer you a tax-effective way to help. Through one of our income-generating gift arrangements, you provide an income stream for your friend while making a gift of principal that will ultimately benefit the College and create a charitable deduction for yourself.


Creating Income For Barnard

You can create an immediate income stream for Barnard for a set number of years, after which the remaining principal will pass tax free to the parties you designate—most often children or grandchildren. Barnard will benefit currently through annual payments, while the assets continue to grow before passing to the next generation.
