Charitable Gift Annuity: A Gift That Gives Back
You can make a gift to the Y of cash or appreciated securities and receive fixed income for your lifetime and/or the lifetime of someone else you choose. Here are some other reasons why you might want to consider it:
- The income does not vary with changes in the economy; a portion of it is usually tax-free, and it is backed by the YMCA’s unrestricted assets.
- You receive a charitable deduction in the year of the gift.
- At the end of your lifetime, the remainder of the annuity principal will pass to the YMCA’s endowment and create your legacy: annual funds generated every year to help the Y continue to influence the lives of Hawaii’s youth and families for generations to come!
A charitable gift annuity could be a great addition to your retirement planning! The minimum gift to establish a CGA with the Y is $10,000, and the minimum annuitant age is 60. The YMCA offers the maximum recommended rates suggested by the American Council on Gift Annuities, for example:
|SAMPLE RATES FOR A SINGLE LIFE CGA|
If you are age 50 or older, you can lock in an even higher rate by deferring the payment start date. You can even arrange for a flexible start date. In addition to cash or appreciated securities, real estate can sometimes be contributed in exchange for a deferred payment charitable gift annuity.
|SAMPLE RATES FOR A SINGLE LIFE DEFERRED PAYMENT CGA|
|Age 50||payment deferred to age 60||6.0%|
|Age 55||payment deferred to age 60||5.1%|
|Age 60||payment deferred to age 65||5.5%|
|Age 65||payment deferred to age 70||5.9%|
