Deferred gift annuity

A deferred charitable gift annuity is similar to a charitable gift annuity except that the payments are deferred to a future date. A donor may defer payments to years when income is needed more, such as retirement. The donor obtains a substantial charitable income tax deduction in the year that the gift is made. Because payments are deferred, allowing the principal to grow, the donor enjoys a high payout rate later. A deferred gift annuity is an excellent way to make a gift and receive a charitable income tax deduction while providing income for the future. Regardless of your age or the timing of the income, you can take the charitable deduction for a portion of the gift in the year you make the gift. A portion of the payments you receive each year may also be exempt from certain income taxes.
