  • Planned Giving
    Pooled Income Fund Much like a mutual fund by directing cash or securities to a Pooled Income Fund established by EmpowerTech you or whomever you designate will receive ownership units in the fund that produces annual income for life The income typically exceeds average returns on stock portfolios and it allows you to donate appreciated securities without paying capital gains taxes At the time of the death of the unit holder the principal attributed to that unit holder will pass to EmpowerTech Charitable Gift Annuity By giving cash or securities to EmpowerTech now through a Charitable Gift Annuity you can set up a fixed income for life for you or up to two individuals The full amount of the cash or securities passes to EmpowerTech allowing you to take an immediate tax deduction for a portion of your gift and your annuity payments are made from the investment income generated by your gift You can defer taking receipt of your annuity payments until a specified future date and the longer you defer the higher the effective rate of your annuity Annuity payments are subject to a variety of different tax treatments so it is important to consult your tax advisor before making your gift Charitable Lead Trust By contributing cash securities or real property to a trust that makes fixed annual payments to EmpowerTech you can make a significant contribution to EmpowerTech and still pass on these assets to your heirs When the trust ends the assets pass on to your heirs You can specify the amount of the annual payment and the length of the trust and all asset appreciation within the trust will ultimately pass to your heirs tax free Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust Contribute cash securities or real property to a trust that makes fixed annual payments
