Some of the best ways to support the California State Parks Foundation are available through life-income gifts. These "Gifts That Pay You Income" help you make a substantial gift to CSPF while increasing your income!
The plans described here all have one substantial advantage over investment vehicles you read about elsewhere: these plans produce generous gifts to the California State Parks Foundation. So, while you will receive income for life or a set period of time, you can provide for yourself and CSPF today.
- A potential increase in the income you are currently receiving from your investments.
- An immediate tax deduction for a portion of your gift.
