Charitable Gift Annuity

With a charitable gift annuity, you can help 92nd Street Y flourish for future generations—and receive tax-advantaged, assured payments during your lifetime. Continuing uncertainty in financial markets means you may want to consider the benefits of completing a gift annuity now.

As 92nd Street Y's charitable gift annuities are managed by the UJA Federation, they are backed by the UJA's endowment and guaranteed for the length of the donor's life. In exchange for your irrevocable gift, the UJA will pay you (or one or two others of your choice) fixed payments each year for life. The older you or your designated recipients are when you make the gift, the higher the amount the UJA can pay.

You may also establish a deferred gift annuity, with payments starting at least one year after you make your gift. The higher rates available for deferred gift annuities are often an attractive way to supplement future retirement earnings.

In most cases, part of each payment to you is tax-free, increasing its after-tax value. If you are the annuitant of a gift annuity you establish with appreciated property, you are liable for only part of the capital gains tax; in addition, the tax you do pay may be spread out over many years.
