Duncan transfers $100,000 to TCS. The School then purchases an insured annuity that pays $5,000 per year. In addition, $25,000 of the funds becomes the gift portion and the amount of Duncan’s charitable tax receipt. This will generate a tax credit of $11,500 that can offset any taxes payable over the next five years.
