Life Income Gifts

Life income gifts enable you not only to make a meaningful legacy gift to Children’s Health Council but also to retain the income from your gift during your lifetime—providing income benefits comparable to, or in some cases exceeding, those that might be earned in non-charitable vehicles.

CHC has partnered with the Silicon Valley Community Foundation to serve as manager/administrator of CHC’s charitable gift annuities. Donors may also select their own third-party managers for charitable remainder trusts to CHC, but not for charitable gift annuities.

We are happy to work with you and your tax and legal advisors to structure the type of planned gift that best fits your financial and philanthropic goals. For more information, please contact Neil C. Muller, Associate Director of Advancement, at 650.688.3667 or

“We established a Charitable Remainder Unitrust as part of our planned giving. This enabled us to accomplish four important goals. We diversified our portfolio by gifting appreciated securities to this trust, obtained a tax benefit as a result of the gift of stock, received interest income during our lifetime, and left a legacy to CHC.” —Cynthia Hockey
