Charitable Gift Annuity from Mike Kura, Haven of Rest Ministries’ Board President
By Lucy Hackett
Many people who desire to financially support charities they care about have chosen a giving vehicle called Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA). This simple arrangement involves a charitable gift and an ongoing income. Individuals can give, while also receiving a permanent income stream for life. CGAs are often an excellent fit for anyone who lives on a fixed income or is concerned about outliving their retirement – but still wants to live generously.
Here’s how CGAs work:
- You make a charitable contribution to fund your CGA (part of which is tax deductible). You can give cash or publicly-traded securities.
- You receive fixed payments each year (monthly, quarterly, or annually) via check or direct deposit into your bank account.
- Your gift goes on to support the charity throughout your lifetime, after which the remaining value benefits your favorite charity.
