Charitable Gift Annuities

A charitable gift annuity is a great way to supplement your income, reduce taxes, and support BBBSA.  If you are age 60 or older, you can provide yourself with high, fixed payments for life with a “charitable gift annuity.”  You make a current, partially tax-deductible gift of cash or stock and receive payments for life, regardless of the market, economy, or interest rates, all while supporting BBBSA.

When you establish a gift annuity, your gift will provide:

  • A charitable income tax deduction (for the present value of the charitable gift)
  • Fixed lifetime payments to you and/or another individual based on the age(s) of the recipient(s)
  • Capital gain tax savings when you use appreciated securities to fund your gift
  • Support for the purpose you designate when payments end
