For larger gifts, consider a deferred-payment charitable gift annuity

A deferred-payment charitable gift annuity ensures a predictable future income for yourself, while also making a substantial contribution to the future of the UW-Madison. In this edition of Dividends magazine, Cheryl Temkin (BA ’70) describes her decision to create a charitable gift annuity to fund a professorship in the Center for Jewish Studies. As Cheryl explains: “At some point you confront the fact that you have to think what’s going to be going forward after you’re gone and where your priorities lie. I realized that charitable gift annuities were a vehicle I could use to gain income that I’ll need over the years. But at the end of the day, the money would go to a place that was important to me.”
