Deferred Charitable Gift Annuity

Stephanie, age 60, establishes a deferred payment gift annuity with a cash gift of $50,000. She locks in a rate of $8.5%, or $4,250 annually, for her lifetime. Her payments will begin when she reaches age 70. Of the $4,250 she will receive each year, $1,746 will be tax-free for many years. She will also receive a charitable deduction of $22,242.50 in the year of her gift.

Stephanie hopes to retire in ten years, and knows that her gift annuity will provide a fixed income to supplement her retirement portfolio. Her gift allows her to plan for the future—both her own and the future of Yale
