I'd check out annuities issued by charitable and educational institutions. At her age the payout is over 10%, it's an annuity so it keeps paying until her death (unless she wants to pass on assets to her heirs) and there are some tax benefits too. So if there is a cause she is into, she can do good for both.

Is there a financial website that can provide this information or should I contact a financial planner? I would like to be as informed as possible before paying for advice?

Maybe I can combine iBonds, CD ladder and this possibility (charity annuity)...any more thoughts?
