Benefits of a charitable gift annuity

How a charitable gift annuity works
A charitable gift annuity is a way to make a gift to support AG Foundation.
- You transfer cash or property to AG Foundation.
- In exchange, we promise to pay fixed payments to you for life. The payment can be quite high depending on your age, and a portion of each payment may even be tax-free.
- You will receive a charitable income tax deduction for the gift portion of the annuity.
- You also receive satisfaction, knowing that you will be helping further our mission.
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. Please contact us to inquire about other assets that you might be able to use to fund a charitable gift annuity.
If you have any questions about charitable gift annuities, please contact us. We would be happy to assist you and answer your questions.
Gift Annuities are available in most states, but there are a few exceptions. Depending upon the laws of the state in which you live, your Assemblies of God Charitable Gift Annuity will be issued by the General Council of the Assemblies of God or Assemblies of God Foundation and will be a general obligation of the issuing organization. Assemblies of God Foundation is an affiliated entity of AG Financial Solutions. Charitable Gift Annuities are not available in Alabama, Hawaii, Montana, New Jersey, New York, or Washington.
Additional information for California residents: Annuities are subject to regulation by the State of California. Payments under this agreement, however, are not protected or otherwise guaranteed by any government agency or the California Life and Health Insurance Guarantee Association. AG Foundation does not practice law and no legal advice is provided. If you need legal advice, you should consult your own legal counsel.
Additional information for Oklahoma residents: A Charitable Gift Annuity is not regulated by the Oklahoma Insurance Department and is not protected by a guaranty association with the Oklahoma Insurance Department.
Additional information for South Dakota residents: Charitable Gift Annuities are not regulated by and are not under the jurisdiction of the South Dakota Division of Insurance.
Current charitable gift annuity (payments begin within one year). With a current gift annuity, you may transfer cash or property in exchange for our promise to pay you fixed payments beginning as early as this year. You will receive an income tax charitable deduction this year for the value of your gift to AG Foundation.
Deferred charitable gift annuity (for payments at future date). Perhaps you are not ready to begin receiving payments until a future date, such as when you retire. With a deferred gift annuity, you establish the gift annuity today, receive a charitable income tax deduction this year, but defer the payments until a designated date sometime in the future. Best of all, because you deferred the payments, your annual payment will be higher when the payments start than they would have been with a current gift annuity.
Flexible deferred charitable gift annuity (gives you flexibility as to when the payments will start). With a flexible deferred gift annuity, you retain the flexibility to decide when the annuity will begin making payments. As with a deferred gift annuity, you establish the annuity today and receive a charitable deduction this year, but the payments are deferred until such time as you elect to begin receiving the payments.
