Charitable Gift Annuities

A charitable gift annuity (“CGA”) provides a fixed lifetime income payment for your donor, or to one or two life income beneficiaries (annuitants) they may choose to designate. After the death of the annuitant(s), the remainder of the gift goes to your organization as the designated charitable beneficiary.

Friends Fiduciary will issue the CGA and allow your donor to designate your organization as the charitable beneficiary. As the issuer of the annuity, Friends Fiduciary bears responsibility for:

Charitable Gift Annuities carry no direct fees for your organization or donors. Friends Fiduciary charges the CGA asset pool an annual administrative fee, in addition to investment and bank fees. At the time of termination, Friends Fiduciary retains 10% of the remainder to support the actual expenses and future payment liabilities of the Charitable Gift Annuity program.
