When you are looking for ways to help the University of Southern Maine with our mission, you shouldn't feel like you are choosing between your philanthropic goals and financial security. One gift that allows you to support USM's work while receiving fixed payments for life is a charitable gift annuity.

Not only does this gift provide you with regular payments and allow us to further our work, but when you create a charitable gift annuity with USM you can receive a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction.

Delay Your Payments

If you are younger than 60 or don't need your payments immediately, you can set up a deferred gift annuity. This allows you to delay receiving payments until a later date—such as when you reach retirement. To learn more, view and download the FREE guide Plan for Retirement With a Deferred Gift Annuity.
