Receive income for life by making a charitable gift.
A “life-income gift” guarantees an income stream for life. Additional benefits may include:
Life-income gifts are simple and flexible. You transfer cash, stocks, real estate, or other property to fund the life-income gift. You (or whomever you designate) receives the income stream for life or for a set number of years. Payments may begin immediately or are deferred to a future date, such as retirement. Ultimately, your life-income gift will benefit the college or program at OSU that is important to you, including scholarships, research, facilities, and faculty. Many life-income donors direct their gift to establish an endowed fund in their name, creating their legacy at OSU forever.
