When you are looking for ways to help Make-A-Wish® with our mission, you shouldn't feel like you are choosing between your philanthropic goals and financial security. One gift that allows you to support Make-A-Wish's work while receiving fixed payments for life is a charitable gift annuity.
Not only does this gift provide you with regular payments and allow us to further our work, but when you create a charitable gift annuity with Make-A-Wish you can receive a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.
Gifts That Pay
Your payments depend on your age at the time of the donation. If you are younger than 60, we recommend that you learn more about your options and download this FREE guide Plan for Retirement With a Deferred Gift Annuity.
An Example of How It Works
Say that Justin, 66, and Mary, 65, want to make a contribution to Make-A-Wish that will support our work for generations to come, but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $20,000 charitable gift annuity with Make-A-Wish. Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.5 percent, which means that they will receive $900 each year for the remainder of their lives. They're also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $6,129* 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 3.2 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
