Provide for Your Family and Impact Families in Great Need

Charitable Gift Annuity

Secure a reliable income stream back to your family and help end poverty -
that's Food for the Hungry's gift annuity in a nutshell.

How It Works

  1. Use a portion of your cash, stocks or property to fund a gift annuity with FH.
  2. Receive a charitable deduction in the year you fund the gift annuity.
  3. FH invests the funds and pays a fixed income for life to you, your spouse or a person you designate (recipient is called the annuitant).
  4. At the annuitant's death, FH uses the remainder to bring Christ's transformative work to the most vulnerable who live in some of the world's hardest places.

That's it. No more stress over the volatility of the market, no more hassle investing the asset. We manage it and you enjoy the steady income payments.

Secure Your Loved One's Future
Income to the annuitant is a fixed amount (s)he can count on for life. It's contractually secured by all the assets of FH.

Simplify Your Life
All the responsibility for stewarding the asset will be on FH's shoulders once you establish the gift annuity. You just receive the payments! Simplifying life has some appeal, doesn't it?

Receive Attractive Payout Rates
The older the annuitant is, the higher the payments will be. See some sample rates below.

Enjoy Advantageous Tax Treatment
- Receive a charitable income tax deduction when you fund the annuity.
- Bypass a portion of the capital gains tax (If donor is also the first annuitant).
- Receive partially tax free payouts.

For example, funding a gift annuity with appreciated stock worth $50,000 today that had an original value of $20,000 may save more than $9,196 in taxes!

Create a Legacy With Impact
First, the gift annuity provides for your family. Then, the remainder goes toward ending poverty. Together, both stages form a God-honoring legacy.

Deferred Gift Annuity for Income at a Future Date

Perhaps you are not ready to begin receiving income until a future date, such as when you retire. You can establish a deferred gift annuity this year, receive a charitable income tax deduction for this year, and then begin receiving payments in a designated future year. Best of all, because you deferred your payments, your annual payment will be higher than with a current annuity. Contact us about flexible date options for your future income.
