Turn Your Generosity Into a Lifetime of Payments for You or a Loved One
A charitable gift annuity is a popular way to make a gift to Hadassah and enjoy payments for yourself at the same time. You make a gift of cash or securities of $5,000 or more and will receive a fixed amount quarterly for the rest of your life. The payout rate is fixed when you establish the annuity and remains the same for your lifetime. After your lifetime, the remainder of the annuity is used by Hadassah to support its lifesaving mission. If you yourself do not need the funds, you may establish an annuity as a gift for one or two important people in your life.
If you do not need the money today, but are planning ahead for your retirement years, consider a deferred charitable gift annuity. You establish the gift annuity now and elect to start receiving payments at least one year in the future (so long as you are at least 60 years old when the payments start). You can also establish a deferred gift annuity to benefit a loved one. The longer the deferral period, the higher the payout rate and the larger the charitable deduction.

Gift Annuity Payout Rates
The payout rate is based on the age of the person or people receiving payments and the number of people receiving payments (one or two). The rate is determined when you establish the gift annuity and, because it is not tied to the stock market or interest rates, it will never change. Please use the gift illustrator to calculate the payout rate and other benefits using your actual date of birth.
