Bequests and Life Income Gifts

Bequests and life income gifts can include the donation of an asset in exchange for income or a bequest to Emory Department of Pediatrics for a specific dollar amount or percentage of the net proceeds of a person's estate. Your gift gives you a special connection to us and you will help now and for years to come.

The Department of Pediatrics is supported by parents, grandparents and friends in many ways. Depending on the asset you choose to give and the gift arrangement that best fits your needs, you can expect to obtain all or some of the following benefits:
  • fulfill your charitable objectives
  • obtain a charitable deduction and reduce your income taxes
  • increase spendable income
  • avoid capital-gain tax on gifts of long-term appreciated property
  • create a new stream of income for life for yourself and/or others
  • eliminate or reduce projected federal estate taxes
  • reduce the cost and time spent on estate settlement
To learn more on the various ways to make a gift that also takes into consideration your personal circumstances and the needs of your heirs, please visit our Gift Planning web site, Ways to Give.
