Tip of the Day

"I can't make a gift to Pomona College -- I'm saving for retirement."

We offer a gift plan that can help you do both.

The deferred gift annuity begins lifetime payments when you want them -- and most donors choose retirement as the starting point.

  • The deferral allows us to offer you a higher payment rate than we can for immediate-payment gift annuities, and
  • it generates a larger charitable deduction.

These features make the deferred gift annuity an attractive option for donors in high-earnings years, looking for a significant tax deduction now and an additional source of retirement income later.
