Charitable Gift Annuity
Gifts That Pay You Income
There's a way for you to support the University of Minnesota, Morris and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a charitable gift annuity.
This type of donation can provide you with regular payments and allow us to further our work. You can also qualify for a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.
Creating a Charitable Gift Annuity
- The minimum gift is $10,000, and the minimum age when payments may begin is 55.
- Gift annuities may be funded with cash or securities.
- Donors may receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of the gift.
- Once the gift annuity is established, it pays a fixed sum annually to one or two people for life based on the amount of the gift and their ages at the time the annuity begins. Payments can be made monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually.
- A charitable gift annuity agreement is irrevocable.
Note: Gift annuities also may be established for others as a lifetime gift or as a testamentary gift through a will or living trust.

An Example of How It Works
Dennis, 66, and Mary, 65, want to make a contribution to Morris but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $20,000 charitable gift annuity.
Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.3 percent, which means that they will receive $860 each year for the remainder of their lives. They're also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $5,544* 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 2.4 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
