An Example of How It Works

Dennis, 66, and Mary, 65, want to make a contribution to GDA but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $20,000 charitable gift annuity.

Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.3%, which means that they will receive $860 each year for the remainder of their lives. They’re also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $5,414* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.

*Based on a 2.4% charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
