Gifts That Pay You Income

Did you know there is a gift to BrightFocus Foundation* and/or its program(s) that returns payments to you? Yes, the IRS allows and encourages these creative plans that can stretch your giving ability. Here’s how they work:

Some of the best ways to support BrightFocus Foundation* and/or its program(s) are available through life-income gifts. These "Gifts That Pay You Income" help you make a substantial gift to BrightFocus* while increasing your income!

The plans described here all have one substantial advantage over investment vehicles you read about elsewhere: these plans produce generous gifts to BrightFocus Foundation* and/or its program(s).
