Charitable Gift Annuity

Are you looking for a secure source of fixed income for now or your future? You may be tired of living at the mercy of the fluctuating stock and real estate markets. One solution is a charitable gift annuity.

How it Works

A charitable gift annuity is a contract between you and the ELCA Foundation.

  • You transfer property to ELCA Foundation. In exchange they pay you fixed income for life.
  • The fixed income can be quite high depending on your age.
  • A portion of your income stream may even be tax free.
  • You will receive a charitable deduction for your gift of the remainder to the church or ministry you choose and the satisfaction of furthering their mission.

Types of Assets You May Give

  • If you decide to fund your gift annuity with cash, a significant portion of the annuity income will be tax free.
  • You may make a gift of your appreciated securities to fund a gift annuity and avoid a portion of the capital gains tax.

Start Receiving Payments Now with a Current Gift Annuity

If you desire current income, you may transfer property in exchange for our promise to pay you fixed income beginning as early as this year. You will receive a income tax charitable deduction this year for the value of your gift to the church or ministry you choose.

Deferred Gift Annuity for Income at Future Date

Perhaps you are not ready to begin receiving income until a future date, such as when you retire. You can establish a deferred gift annuity, receive a charitable income tax deduction this year and receive payments at a designated future time. Best of all, because you deferred your payments, your annual payment will be higher than with a current annuity. Contact us about flexible date options for your future income.
