Charitable Gift Annuities
A charitable gift annuity, or CGA, is a contract between a donor and a charity that provides lifetime income for one or two persons, who need not be related. This way of giving is a great solution for donors age 60 or older who want to support the LSU Foundation but are concerned about having enough money to support themselves.
A charitable gift annuity through the LSU Foundation will allow you to both leave a legacy at LSU and also enjoy the security of fixed income for life, or a two-life annuity for you and your spouse (or other designee). Upon your passing, the remainder of the annuity will go to the LSU college or program of your choice.
When you make a donation of $25,000 or more, you will not need to watch your investments fluctuate with the markets. Your gift annuity will bring tax benefits and prevent possible capital gains. Plus, a portion of the quarterly payment may be tax free. Gifts may be funded through cash, appreciated stocks or certificates of deposit.
A gift annuity is backed by all of a charity's assets, assuring that you receive lifelong income. For personalized rate quotes on deferred and two-life chari¬table annuities, please contact our planned giving team. Rates are determined by American Council on Gift Annuities, not the LSU Foundation.
