With a charitable gift annuity, we pay you to help us cure cancer. Your gift of $25,000 or more can give you lifetime fixed income. Afterwards, the remaining balance will fund blood cancer research to save lives.
Five Ways You Benefit
You will receive identical payments for as long as you live that will not change regardless of market fluctuations.
Receive a higher return than many other options. The rate depends on the age(s) of the income recipient(s) when you make the gift and whether the annuity is to pay one person or two.
- a tax deduction in the year you make your gift
- payments will be partially tax-free throughout your expected life
- tax on "paper profit" is minimized if you use appreciated stock to fund the annuity
Provide income for others
Charitable gift annuities can make payments to you alone, to you and someone else, or to two others you choose to name.
Leave a lasting legacy
Your charitable gift annuity can provide the long-term research funding that achieves lifesaving breakthroughs.
