How it Works

Couple walking and smiling Dennis, 66, and Mary, 65, want to make a contribution to CSU but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $100,000 charitable gift annuity.

Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.3 percent, which means that they will receive $4,300 each year for the remainder of their lives. They're also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $22,645* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.

*Based on annual payments and a 1.8 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions vary based on income earned.
