Great tax benefits exist for those who give. Here are some of the gifts and associated benefits you should know about.

Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund can provide you with immediate tax benefits while making your charitable giving easier for years to come. Might a donor-advised fund be right for you? Here’s how it works.

IRA Rollover

The IRA charitable rollover is now permanent and is a terrific way to make a tax-free gift to Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health using your qualified retirement plan. This gift may also satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD).

Charitable Lead Annuity Trust

Make a substantial gift to Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in the form of fixed annual payments and pass assets to your family or other heirs at reduced tax cost.

Charitable Lead Unitrust

Make a substantial gift to Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in the form of variable annual payments and pass assets to your family or other heirs at reduced tax cost.

Retained Life Estates

Donate your home, farm or a second home to Chan School of Public Health and receive an immediate income tax charitable deduction, while retaining the right to live in your home for the rest of your life. If you itemize your deductions instead of taking the standard deduction you could save significant income taxes.
