Fellow John Bodel examines a Latin inscription in Histria, Romania.

Planned giving is a great way to support ACLS while generating income for yourself and your family. Learn how these gifts allow you to achieve both of these goals.

Charitable Remainder Annuity Trusts

A charitable remainder annuity trust can provide a dependable income for life while making a significant gift to the American Council of Learned Societies.

Charitable Remainder Unitrust

A charitable remainder unitrust can help you maintain or increase your income while making a significant gift to the American Council of Learned Societies. The charitable remainder unitrust is highly flexible. You can easily make gifts of assets that are not easily converted to cash using the unitrust. If your unitrust grows, your payments will grow too, providing a potential hedge against inflation.

Charitable Flip Unitrust

A flip unitrust can be an excellent way for you to give an asset that may take time to sell and receive substantial payments for life once the flip unitrust sells your asset. You might also be interested in using a flip unitrust to make a gift now that will supplement your income in the future, such as when you retire.
