Navy captain, grateful alumna

During her retirement, Dolores created a charitable gift annuity that provided her with reliable, steady income.  Now her gift provides scholarship resources for graduate nursing students interning at La Clinica De La Raza, a community health clinic in Oakland. 

Starting with a simple gesture many years ago, Dolores’s legacy lives on through the gift she made to support talented nursing students.

Augmenting her retirement savings and a locking in a charitable deduction for 2018.

Tamara Jones is a successful 55-year-old USF alumna working at Google. She is well-compensated and saves the maximum amount allowed in her 401(k) plan each year. Her financial goals are to augment her retirement savings and to create a charitable deduction to offset a large bonus she received in 2018. 

After reviewing a gift proposal with her financial advisor, Tamara decides to give $100,000 in long-term appreciated stock to USF to create a Flexible Gift Annuity. Under this plan Tamara avoids a capital gain tax on the sale of her stock, and she qualifies for a charitable deduction of $43,812, providing her with tax relief in 2018. 

In future years, Tamara can select when she wants to start taking lifetime payments from her Flexible Gift Annuity. If her payments begin at age 65 she will receive $6,400 each year. If she starts her payments at age 70, she will receive $8,200. The longer Tamara defers starting her lifetime payments, the greater her annuity rate will be. 

At the conclusion of Tamara’s gift, the remaining funds will be used by USF for the purpose Tamara specified when she created her Flexible Gift Annuity.
