Gifts That Pay Income

 Make a charitable gift that “gives back” in more ways than one—supplementing your own income in your lifetime while helping Spaulding’s patients find their strength.

There are a variety of ways to support Spaulding that can generate an attractive, reliable income stream for you and your family. Moreover, these special gift vehicles enable you to give more to Spaulding than you otherwise thought possible.

How to Contribute

Impact the lives of people suffering from a debilitating illness or recovering from a traumatic event.

Common Life Income Options

  • Charitable gift annuity: In exchange for your charitable gift of $10,000 or more to Spaulding, you receive a fixed and guaranteed income stream for life, based on the age of those receiving the income.
  • Charitable remainder trust: This flexible option pays income to you or your other beneficiaries, either for life or a term of up to 20 years. Payments from a charitable remainder trust could grow over time, depending on a number of factors.

With both of these gift vehicles, donors typically enjoy an income tax charitable deduction equal to a portion of the gift amount, and avoid any up-front capital gains taxes.

Benefit Spaulding Now and Your Heirs Later
You also could establish a Charitable lead trust that will pay income to Spaulding now, with the remainder going in the future to your heirs. Such a gift could result in significant gift or estate tax savings, while providing an immediate impact for Spaulding.

We encourage you to consult your own advisors about these life income options. For more information and to receive a sample gift illustration based on your age, or to explore how these gift plans could work for you, please contact John MacRae, Senior Director of Principal and Major Gifts, at 617-952-6811, or

Impact in Action

Picture of Rick Ryan

After successfully recovering from a stroke, Rick Ryan began giving back to Spaulding as a volunteer peer visitor in the stroke unit. Rick then established a significant charitable remainder trust to benefit Spaulding—which will pay him an income annuity for the rest of his life. Eventually, the proceeds will support stroke research at Spaulding, benefiting future patients and leaving a generous lasting legacy in his name.

Imagine the Possibilities

At a time when scientific advancements can help make the impossible possible, an investment in rehabilitation medicine has never been more necessary—or more promising.
