Charitable Gift Annuity – Immediate Income


A charitable gift annuity provides you with immediate income for life and the principal passes to UVa-Wise when the contract ends.  A charitable gift annuity may be established with a small investment ($5,000 minimum) and can be funded with cash, appreciated securities or in some cases a gift of real estate.  The minimum age to fund a gift annuity is 55 years of age.
