Charitable Gift Annuity

Gifts That Pay You Income

There's a way for you to support Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Foundation and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a charitable gift annuity. 

With a charitable gift annuity you agree to make a gift to the Foundation and we, in return, agree to pay you (and someone else, if you choose) a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life. The balance is used to support our work.

This type of donation can provide you with regular payments for life and allow the Foundation to further our mission. You can also qualify for a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction if you itemize.

Gifts That Pay

Your payments depend on your age at the time of the donation. If you are younger than 60, we recommend that you learn more about your options and download this FREE guide Deferred Gift Annuities: Plan Now, Benefit Later.

An Example of How It Works

Couple smiling Mary, 70, wants to make a contribution to the Foundation but she also wants to ensure that she has dependable income during her retirement years. She funds a $50,000 charitable gift annuity with appreciated stock that she originally purchased for $20,000.

Based on her age, she will receive a payment rate of 5.3%, which means that she will receive $2,650 each year for the remainder of her life. She is also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $22,116* when she itemizes. Finally, she knows that after her lifetime, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.

*Based on a 3.6% charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
