Here are some of the ways you can give:
You can create an endowed scholarship in your name, the name of a loved one or the name of your company. Each year the interest earned on the endowment will be used to provide scholarships while the principal is reinvested.
By contributing a lump sum to LAA through a donor-advised fund, you get an immediate tax deduction. LAA then legally controls the money, but you advise us on how the funds will be disbursed.
Charitable remainder trust
Through a charitable remainder trust, you transfer assets to an irrevocable trust and receive regular payments from the trust. At the end of the trust’s term, the remainder goes to LAA. You receive an income-tax deduction for the amount estimated to remain with LAA, though the payments you receive from the trust are generally taxable.
Charitable lead trust
With a lead trust, you make a donation to a trust and LAA receives regular payments for a specified term. At the end of the trust’s term, the remainder of the funds are returned to you.
Charitable gift annuity
With an annuity, LAA receives a donation then regularly pays a fixed amount to the donor for life. Although a portion of the annuity payments are taxable, you receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the amount estimated to remain with LAA.
Many corporations match employee gift contributions to charitable institutions. Consult your company’s benefits office for details.
Gifts in kind
Gifts or services—such as printing, catering, office supplies—may also be donated to LAA. The value of the gift will be credited to your name, and the contribution is tax deductible.
