Charitable Gift Annuities

Perhaps the simplest of all life income producing gifts, the charitable gift annuity is a contract between you and Quinnipiac in which, in exchange for a gift of $10,000 or more, Quinnipiac guarantees to pay up to two beneficiaries of your choosing a fixed annual income for life. The payout rates offered by Quinnipiac are those recommended by the American Council on Gift Annuities and are based on the age(s) of the income beneficiaries. In addition to an income tax charitable deduction at the time the gift was made, the donor/income beneficiary may also benefit by the favorable tax treatment of the annuity payments.

Charitable gift annuities may be designed to make payments to one or two individuals and begin payments immediately. The flexible gift annuity defers payments until sometime in the future, but does not require you to choose a specific date thus addressing the concerns of many who do not know when they might want to retire.
