The simplest life income gift arrangement is the Charitable Gift Annuity, a contract between you and the CAF, providing for payments to one or two beneficiaries at a fixed rate. In exchange for a gift of $25,000 or more, the CAF will provide an attractive annuity rate (CAF’s annuity rates are based on the suggested rates of the American Council on Gift Annuities) and guaranteed payments for life. You may contribute cash or appreciated assets to establish a gift annuity. You are eligible for a charitable income tax deduction in the year that the gift is made. A Charitable Gift Annuity also allows for potential tax advantages, such as a reduction in estate and capital gains taxes.
