You may make gifts of appreciated stock, mutual funds, or real estate and take an income tax deduction for the gift's current fair market value. When UTC sells the property, all capital gains taxes that would have been owed on the sale are avoided.
Charitable Remainder Trust
You may fund the trust with cash or appreciated assets and receive income for your life and the life of a loved one after the donated asset is sold by the trust. Again, all capital gains taxes are avoided on the sale. You receive a partial income tax deduction based on age and the amount of income received from the trust. Further, the trust assets are removed from your estate.
Retained Life Estate
You may deed your home, vacation home, or farm to UTC Athletics and receive an income tax deduction based on your age and the value of the property. You retain the use of the property for your lifetime, but the asset is removed from your estate. You remain responsible for maintenance, taxes, and insurance on the property.
IRA/Retirement Assets
You may make UTC Athletics the full or partial beneficiary of an IRA or other tax-advantaged retirement plan and avoid income taxes that may be charged to the estate based on its account value.
Charitable Gift Annuity
In exchange for a gift of property, marketable securities, or cash, the UC Foundation will contractually guarantee to pay your or another beneficiary a specified annuity for a set number of years or a lifetime.
Life Income Gifts
Charitable remainder trusts can provide current tax advantages while providing the donor with income for a designated period of time or for life. They provide the Athletic Department with an endowed scholarship or operating fund gift upon the completion of the trust or donor's death. You also are encouraged to consult your tax advisor. Benefits for these gifts must be evaluated on an individual case basis.
Endowments
Athletic endowments at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga provide a permanent source of income to support student-athletes and allow them to develop and compete for championships each year. Endowments may be established and named with a commitment of at least $25,000. These help to ensure that future generations of student-athletes will have the opportunity to become part of the Chattanooga family.
