An Endowment Fund allows you or your family to set up a fund to which you may make either a one-time gift or multiple gifts over time. Donations may be in cash or appreciated assets, typically stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or real estate.
Charitable Gift Annuities
A Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) is a contractual agreement whereby a donor makes an irrevocable contribution of capital in exchange for guaranteed payments for life (or the life of another person) at a specified rate. This is a safe investment, and payments are fixed for life, and depending on age, a major portion of the income may be tax-free. The minimum amount required to open a Charitable Gift Annuity is $5,000 or more.

Charitable Remainder Trust
If you have assets you would like to leave to charity, but you need to retain the income they produce for your lifetime you may want to consider the many benefits of the Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT).
A CRT is funded by a transfer of cash or appreciated assets such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other appreciated property to an irrevocable trust, which then provides current payments to one or more individuals, followed by a distribution to a charitable beneficiary at the end of the trust period. The trust can be established so that payments will be received for life or for a set number of years.
The amount of your income payments can be a percentage of the initial value of the trust or a percentage of the value of the trust as of the beginning of each year. The first is a Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust and the second is a Charitable Remainder Unitrust.
A federal tax deduction is allowed at the time that you create the CRT. The amount of the deduction depends on factors such as your age, the payment percentage you select, and the applicable federal rate.
