An annuity is an agreement between an individual and a charity. The donor transfers assets to a charity and receives fixed payments, a lifetime annuity, for the rest of his or her lifetime and/or the lifetime of another person, if desired.
A gift annuity offers you a way to support causes in which you believe while benefiting from:
- Lifetime payments.
- Management of assets.
- Tax savings.
- Favorable treatment of capital gains.
The amount of fixed payments into an annuity is based on your life expectancy. The older you are, the higher the payment. Annuity payments can start right away or after you retire. Assets used to create an annuity can be cash, real estate or securities.
