ike many couples who met at Iowa State, Rich and Carm Greenlee have great memories of their college days. They shared a close-knit group of friends and are still in touch with many of them. Carm, a Minnesota native, was a member of the Kappa Delta sorority and graduated in child development in 1965. Rich, a 1966 graduate in construction engineering, was a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. Rich grew up in Des Moines and came to Iowa State because “that’s where you go to be an engineer.” He started in the architectural engineering program, but was intrigued by professor Tom Jellinger’s teachings, which focused on construction engineering and were new to Iowa State at the time.

“Tom Jellinger was the guy who shaped what I wanted to do.”

— Rich Greenlee

After jobs in Texas, Iowa and Minnesota, both realized that they wanted more than to work for someone else and their entrepreneurial spirits took over. Rich opened his own engineering consulting firm and Carm created a business partnership as a manufacturer’s representative with a fellow Iowa State alumna and friend. Rich has since retired, but continues to consult with his most recent company, Engineering Partners, and Continued on page 4

hen it comes to supporting Iowa State University’s long-term future, the charitable gift annuity is one method favored by many of our donors. When you set up a charitable gift annuity (CGA) with the ISU Foundation, we’ll provide you with lifetime payments that remain constant even with a fluctuating stock market. This offers you the opportunity to supplement your retirement income and continue to make a difference at Iowa State.

HOW IT WORKS

? Did You Know? Thanks to donor support, more than 80 new endowed faculty positions were created during Campaign Iowa State.

A CGA is a simple contract between you and the ISU Foundation. You make a donation using cash or marketable securities and we, in turn, pay you a fixed amount for life. With this type of gift, you can feel secure knowing you can count on receiving stable payments for as long as you live.

Figures cited in examples are for hypothetical purposes only and are subject to change. References to estate and income taxes include federal taxes only. State income/estate taxes or state law may impact your results.

YOUR TAX BENEFITS Gift annuities offer additional benefits besides secure and stable payments. You can also receive an income tax deduction for a portion of your gift in the year you set up your CGA.

CASE STUDY: CREATING AN IOWA STATE GIFT ANNUITY Since Roger and Karen, who are both 70 years old, would like to secure their retirement income, they decide to create a charitable gift annuity with the ISU Foundation. This way they can make the $10,000 cash gift they’ve always wanted and, in exchange, they will receive $460 each year for as long as either one is living. Unlike some pension plans, their gift annuity payments do not stop or reduce in size at the death of the first spouse. In addition, approximately $369 of each $460 payment is income tax–free to them.

Continued from page 1 Carm now works part-time as a buyer for a small gift shop. The Greenlees have three children and nine grandchildren. All live nearby in the Twin Cities. Their youngest son, Greg, followed in his parents’ footsteps and attended Iowa State, earning a degree in civil engineering. He is now a principal at his dad’s company, Engineering Partners.

SAYING THANK YOU WITH A WIN-WIN GIFT

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

CHECK OUT YOUR PAYMENT RATE ONE LIFE

­©2012 I owa State University Foundation and The Stelter Company

Your age when the payments begin and the amount of your donation determine the size of your payment. The older you are, the higher your fixed rate (see charts, below). You receive payments for life, and, if you choose, you can have the payments continue for the life of another person. After that, the remaining funds are used to support our students and programs (or the area you choose to support).

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

(After more than 20 years, when they reach their combined life expectancy, the entire gift annuity payment then becomes taxable as ordinary income.) They can also deduct approximately $2,587* as an income tax deduction when they itemize on their tax return. Roger and Karen are happy with their choice of a CGA — they are able to make a meaningful charitable gift to Iowa State and at the same time give themselves stable and secure payments for life.

*Based on annual payments and a 1.4 percent charitable midterm federal rate.

In 2008, the construction engineering program began planning for its 50th anniversary. Part of the celebration included a fundraising effort to create and name a laboratory in honor of Rich’s former professor Tom Jellinger. Rich wanted to honor the man who helped define his career path, so the Greenlees made a pledge to support the Tom and Ro Jellinger Laboratory in Town Engineering Hall. After talking with representatives from the ISU Foundation, the couple figured out a way they could do something meaningful. They decided

to create the Greenlee Lectureship in Construction Engineering. They liked the idea of an annual lecture series to bring well-known speakers to campus and to help bring prestige to Iowa State’s construction engineering program. The Greenlees decided to establish a charitable gift annuity to fund their lecture series. With this type of gift, they qualify for an immediate income tax deduction for part of their gift and receive fixed payments for the remainder of their lives. The proceeds from the charitable gift annuity will one day create an endowed fund for the Greenlee Lectureship, ensuring that the lecture continues for many years to come. In addition to their gift annuity, Rich and Carm decided to make an annual cash gift right away, so that the lecture could get started more quickly. The first lecture will likely happen next spring, to coincide with the annual banquet in construction engineering. “We had a very good education at Iowa State,” Carm said. “It was time for us to give back.”

LET US KNOW We realize that many of you have remembered Iowa State in your estate plans and, for many different reasons, have chosen not to reveal your intentions to us. To this visionary group, we’d like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude and encourage you to step forward. By sharing your plans with us, we can ensure that your gift will be used exactly as you intend. Use the enclosed survey or contact us to notify us of your intentions.
