Make a Gift

Make a Gift. Get Something Back. Support LLS through a Charitable Gift Annuity.

A charitable gift annuity provides both lifetime payments to the annuitant (usually the donor) and a gift to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Of course the primary purpose of any gift is to support our work in fighting blood cancers, but the fixed income annuity payments make this way of giving highly attractive to many of our supporters. 

Example:  Constance, age 80, considers using cash from a maturing CD to set up a gift annuity at a rate of 6.8% with us.  In return for $20,000 to fund a gift annuity, we agree to pay Constance $1,360 every year for as long as she lives.  Constance qualifies for a charitable income tax deduction if she itemizes, and appreciates the boost in her annual income which is partly tax free.  Best of all, she knows that her gift will ultimately help to fight blood cancers.

Charitable gift annuities are very simple to establish and can be funded with cash, other appreciated assets like stock or even paid-up life insurance.  Why not give us a call at 888-773-9958 and request an illustration of how a charitable gift annuity might work for you or for you and a second person.  We will include our free pamphlet The Gift Annuity which will provide even more information.   Contact Ed Rodbro, National Director of Planned Giving at legacy@lls.org  for your free illustration and pamphlet or for more information.  There is never a cost, obligation or sales promotion of any kind associated with your inquiries.
