Charitable Gift Annuity

Receive Reliable and Partly Tax-free Payments


A Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) is a contract between the donor and the charity whereby the donor is exchanging a gift for an assured fixed payment for life. Payment may be made for one or two lives. The size of the payment is based on the age(s) of the payment recipients; the older the recipient(s) the larger the payment may be.


Donors are allowed a tax deduction for a portion of the amount gifted to the CGA. For the recipient’s life expectancy, a portion of each payment will be tax-free. When funded with appreciated assets, part of the capital gains tax is forgiven, and the rest is spread over the donor’s life expectancy. Capital gains are treated differently when a CGA is created for someone other than the donor and/or a spouse.
