A Gift to the Museum That Pays You Back

A life income gift is an ideal means of supporting the Smithsonian Institution while receiving regular payments for the duration of your life and the lives of loved ones.

With a charitable remainder trust, you can simultaneously build the museum’s future and create a reliable income stream for you and the beneficiaries you select.

When you establish a charitable gift annuity at the museum, you receive guaranteed, fixed-income payments and a charitable income tax deduction in the year you make the donation. Gift annuities are for life. Their effect on the museum is forever.
