Gift Administration Services
Our gift administration services focus on the crucial aspects of planned giving development. Our comprehensive processes ensure that we provide the right solution for you.
Charitable Remainder Trust
Charitable trusts can provide income and estate tax deductions and lifetime income to donors, but only if administered properly. We provide trustee services, comprehensive record keeping, four-tier accounting, income distributions, annual reporting, tax return preparation, and ongoing client communication. You can count on us to monitor the continually changing tax environment and its effect on your trust.
Charitable Gift Annuity
We offer comprehensive, affordable gift annuity administration for your charitable organization, freeing you to concentrate on other tasks. We tailor our services to your needs and act as a partner in your development program. Our clients trust us for timely and accurate distributions as well as timely tax forms to income beneficiaries. As a result, their donors always receive the highest level of service - increasing donor loyalty and giving.
We provide services on a bundled or unbundled basis. For example, Green Oak can operate an entire program for a charity or simply prepare annual reports on a flat fee basis.
Gift Annuities California
We are specialists in helping organizations from other states provide charitable gift annuities in California. In coordination with CGA legal consultants, we can help you navigate the complex process and establish a cost-effective, segregated reserve account. We can also connect you with skilled investment managers familiar with the California Department of Insurance requirements.
Charitable Lead Trusts, Donor Advised Funds & Pooled Income Funds
We understand the unique needs of each charitable model. We can help you explore these charitable gift programs in detail, then implement and operate them for you.
