Charitable Gift Annuities & Deferred Gift Annuities
Charitable Gift Annuities
With a simple contractual agreement, a donor can establish an educational endowment fund benefiting a particular area of interest and receive a guaranteed lifetime income. With a minimum gift of $20,000, a donor receives guaranteed quarterly income payments for the rest of his or her life. Annuity rates can be offered for one or two people and range from 2.6% to 9.5%, depending on the age and number of income recipients.

There are no start-up fees, the donor qualifies for a substantial charitable tax deduction and capital gains taxes can be reduced and spread over a number of years.
Deferred Gift Annuities
By establishing a deferred gift annuity now and directing the quarterly payments to begin after one's 65th birthday, a donor can enhance retirement income substantially and receive a larger charitable deduction.
