If you are like other people in this day and age, supporting charitable organizations is important to you. While you may have substantial cash or appreciated securities to donate, you may not want to give up the annual income you currently earn o n your assets. Or you may have CDs coming due and are faced with lower rates. Today, many donors wonder, "How can I give in a way that makes financial sense for my family and me?"
There is a way to give that has been around for over 100 years that can help donors who want to make larger gifts, but can't afford to reduce their cash flow. That gift is the charitable gift annuity. It gives you the security of a fixed annual payment during your lifetime, while also allowing you the opportunity to make a gift to St. Rita School for the Deaf. You can even include a second beneficiary, such as your spouse, to receive the income after you.
