Make A Gift and Receive Fixed Payments for Life

If you’d like to support New England Public Radio and receive steady payments throughout your life, a charitable gift annuity may be right for you.

Donate Appreciated Stocks

If you give stocks that you have owned for more than one year and that are worth more than their purchase price, you’ll qualify for significant tax advantages…both a deduction for the stock’s full market value, and no capital gains due on the appreciation in the stock’s value.

Give Retirement Plan Assets

Consider making New England Public Radio a beneficiary of a percentage of your retirement plan assets, which will probably be the most heavily taxed assets in your estate.   Leave less heavily taxed assets to your loved ones.

Use Life Insurance to Make a Gift

Create a Charitable Trust

With a charitable remainder trust, you can receive income each year…either fixed or variable…from assets you place in the trust.  After your lifetime, the balance in the trust goes to the philanthropic organization or organizations you have specified.
