Charitable Gift Annuities

A charitable gift annuity is a gift that gives back. An annuity allows you to make a generous gift to NAMI and in return you and/or another beneficiary will receive a fixed stream of income from NAMI for the rest of your life. You may also be eligible to claim a partial charitable tax deduction when you set up your charitable gift annuity.

How it Works:

  • You donate $5,000 or more in cash, securities or other property.
  • You and/or your beneficiary receive fixed annual payments for life at a very attractive rate based on the age(s) of the beneficiaries.
  • You can begin receiving payments immediately (if you are 60 or older) or defer payments for a year or more.
  • You may be eligible for an immediate tax deduction. If you donated appreciated property, you may save on capital gains taxes as well.
  • This ensures a generous gift to NAMI and steady, lifetime income for you.
  • If you are age 70 ½ or older, you may be able to make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) of up to $53,000 from your IRA to fund a gift annuity.
