Benefits of a charitable gift annuity

  • Receive fixed payments to you or another annuitant you designate for life
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction for the charitable gift portion of the annuity
  • Partial bypass of capital gains tax on contributed assets
  • Benefit from payments that may be partially tax-free
  • Designate the remainder to further the mission of Ohio University

How a charitable gift annuity works

  1. Complete a short agreement with The Ohio University Foundation
  2. Transfer cash or publicly traded securities to The Ohio University Foundation.
  3. In exchange, we promise to pay fixed payments to you for life. The payout rate is based on your age, and a portion of your income may be tax-free.
  4. You will receive a charitable income tax deduction, and a partial bypass capital gain tax, for the gift portion of the annuity.

If you decide to fund your gift annuity with cash, a significant portion of the annuity payment will be tax-free. You may also make a gift of appreciated securities to fund a gift annuity and avoid a portion of the capital gains tax.
