More and more individuals are using charitable gift annuities to provide lifetime income at a fixed rate of return — and to make a substantial gift to Bread for the World Institute in the future.
You can establish a charitable gift annuity with as little as $10,000. A simple contract provides a fixed annual income for the rest of your life — or the life of another beneficiary you select. You may be eligible for an income tax deduction for your initial gift, and part of the income you receive each year may also be tax-deductible. If you use appreciated assets to fund your charitable gift annuity, you may avoid some capital gains taxes.
Charitable gift annuities are available to Bread for the World members who are 65 years or older by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, whose foundation manages more than $500 million in investments. The ELCA website provides a gift annuity calculator for planning purposes.
