Charitable Gift Annuity

A charitable gift annuity (CGA) is a gift of cash or appreciated securities. In exchange for your generous gift, we commit to providing you (or a loved one) with a fixed income for life. Beyond the annuity payments, the remaining funds support Braille Institute. A deferred or flexible charitable gift annuity is especially designed for younger donors. It makes fixed payments to you and/or another beneficiary for life, with payments starting at a future date.

Benefits of a charitable gift annuity

  • Receive fixed payments to you or another annuitant you designate for life. (With a flexible gift annuity, the longer you wait to start payments, the greater the payment amount you will receive once the annuity starts).
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction for the charitable gift portion of the annuity
  • Benefit from payments that may be partially tax-free
  • Further the charitable work of Braille Institute with your gift

How a charitable gift annuity works

A charitable gift annuity is a way to make a gift to support Braille Institute.

  1. You transfer cash or property to Braille Institute.
  2. In exchange, we promise to pay fixed payments to you for life. The payment can be quite high depending on your age, and a portion of each payment may even be tax-free.
  3. You will receive a charitable income tax deduction for the gift portion of the annuity.
  4. You also receive satisfaction, knowing that you will be helping advance our mission.

If you decide to fund your gift annuity with cash, a significant portion of the annuity payment will be tax-free. You may also make a gift of appreciated securities to fund a gift annuity and avoid a portion of the capital gains tax. Please contact us to inquire about other assets that you might be able to use to fund a charitable gift annuity.
