Did you know that you can raise your income and lower your taxes with a Charitable Gift Annuity?
You may be tired of living at the mercy of the fluctuating stock market. A charitable gift annuity is a gift made to the THE FOUNDATION of the Diocese of Raleigh for the benefit of your parish, alma mater, or favorite diocesan ministry organization that can provide you with a secure source of fixed payments for life. Benefits of a charitable gift annuity include:
>> Mr. & Mrs. Smith have $100,000 in appreciated stock to give to their favorite Catholic charity
>> The couple wants a lifetime income stream
>> Both Mr. & Mrs. Smith are 75 years old
>> THE FOUNDATION agrees to pay the couple an annuity rate of 5.5 per cent*
>> $100,000 x 5.5% = $5,500
>> The Smiths receive $5,500 a year for their respective lifetimes. A portion of this annual income may be tax-free
>> The Smiths avoid most of their capital gains tax on the $100,000 asset
>> Upon reaching their heavenly reward, the remainder of the $100,000 is given to the Catholic charity identified by Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
