3 Reasons to Establish Your Charitable Gift Annuity Today

A Charitable Gift Annuity is a superb vehicle for charitable giving that also creates a regular income for you. You make a significant donation, and receive regular payments for the rest of your lifetime, based on rates such as the ones in the chart.

Age Rate%
65 5.1
70 5.6
75 6.2
80 7.3
85 8.3
90 9.5

Now is a great time to establish your CGA, for 3 important reasons:

REASON #1:

For the first time in several years — payout rates have gone UP.

Once you establish a Charitable Gift Annuity, the payout you receive regularly is locked in at a certain rate, no matter the condition of the stock market.

REASON #2:

Flexibility. Annuity payments can be made for a single life or for two. You may also choose to defer payments to a time when the income will be needed. And if there ever comes a time you do not need the income, you can assign it to Cru or dissolve the annuity and release the funds for ministry during your lifetime.

REASON #3:

The Cru Foundation’s “Double Impact” Challenge Fund will increase the power of your contribution today!

Establish a new CGA, and we’ll double a portion of your next gift to any Cru ministry or the ministry of a staff member:

  • For a $10,000 CGA, we double up to $100
  • For $25,000, we double up to $250
  • For 50,000, we double up to $500
  • For 100,000+, we double up to $1,000

When you establish a CGA, you set benefits in motion today, tomorrow, and forever: you get a tax deduction right away, you receive fixed-rate payments for the rest of your life, and your generosity makes an impact on lives for eternity!
