Charitable Gift Annuity
Are you looking for a secure source of fixed income for now or your future? You may be tired of living at the mercy of the fluctuating stock and real estate markets. One solution is a charitable gift annuity.
Gift annuities are a wonderful way to support our mission and provide you with a guaranteed lifetime income that will not fluctuate. Gift annuities are particularly useful if you desire a fixed and guaranteed income stream and have assets that produce little to no income or return. What's better is that as annuity payout rates are set by age, the older the income beneficiary, the higher the fixed payment you will received.
In essence, a charitable gift annuity (CGA) is a simple contract that you establish between yourself and the University of California. In exchange for a gift of cash or publically traded stock, the University agrees to make fixed payments to you for the remainder of your life.
Once the University's obligation to you has been fulfilled, whatever remains of your initial gift is used to further the University's mission in an area that you designate.
