How it Works
With a charitable gift annuity, you make a donation using cash, marketable securities or other assets, and we, in turn, pay you a fixed amount for life. It’s a great way to supplement your retirement income and feel secure during retirement.
Beyond increasing your retirement income as you help shape Eskaton Foundation’s future, gift annuities offer you tax benefits, including:
• A partial income tax charitable deduction now for your gift when you itemize.
• Part of each payment is income tax–free throughout your estimated life expectancy.
Tip: Consider Giving Appreciated Assets Funding a gift annuity with appreciated assets can provide additional financial benefits. Call Kim Rhinehelder, VP of Communications and Philanthropy, at 916-334-0810 to learn more.
