Charitable Gift Annuities
The Alzheimer’s Association offers charitable gift annuities, which are simple contracts between a donor and a charity (such as the Alzheimer’s Association), to pay the donor a fixed amount, usually quarterly, for the rest of his or her life, in exchange for an initial gift of $5,000 or more. Gift annuities are easy to establish and offer a tax deduction at the time of the initial gift. In addition, a portion of the lifetime payments made to the annuitant may be tax-free. Gift annuities may be established for one or two annuitants and may be funded with cash or appreciated stock. To find out more about planned giving, contact the association 800.272.3900.
