How It Works

  • You transfer cash, securities, or other appreciated property into a trust. Our suggested minimum gift requirement is $100,000.
  • The trust pays a percentage of the value of its principal, which is valued annually, to you or beneficiaries you name.
  • When the trust terminates, the remainder passes to Gettysburg College to be used as you have directed.

Benefits

  • Receive income for life or a term of years in return for your gift. 
  • Receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your contribution.
  • Pay no up front capital gains tax on appreciated assets you donate.
  • You can make additional gifts to the trust as your circumstances allow for additional income and tax benefits.
