Gifts That Pay You Income

Charitable Gift Annuities

Income for life, lower taxes, educating and inspiring – that is what happens when you create a legacy gift through a charitable gift annuity.

You can make a substantial impact through WGBH while receiving tax-favorable income for you, your spouse, and your children. Many supporters like charitable gift annuities because of their attractive payout rates and their significant impact.

Benefits to you include:


  • Payments can be made as you prefer on an annual, quarterly or monthly basis.
  • A portion of the payout will be tax-free.
  • You receive an immediate tax receipt for a portion of your gift.
  • Your gift passes to WGBH Educational Foundation outside of the estate process.
  • You create your legacy of accessible public media that promotes inclusion.

Charitable Remainder Trust

Benefits to you include each of the following:

  • Receive income for life for you or your heirs.
