Charitable Gift Annuity

Gifts That Pay You Income

There's a way for you to support Boston Children's Hospital and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a charitable gift annuity. 

With a charitable gift annuity you agree to make a gift to Boston Children's and we, in return, agree to pay you (and someone else, if you choose) a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life. The balance is used to help sick children from your town and around the world.

This type of donation can provide you with regular payments for life and allow Boston Children's to provide answers for kids and their families. You can also qualify for a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction if you itemize.

An Example of How It Works

Couple smiling Dennis, 75, and Mary, 73, want to make a contribution to Boston Children's to support sick children, but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They fund a $25,000 charitable gift annuity with appreciated stock that they originally purchased for $10,000.

Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 5.1%, which means that they will receive $1,275 each year for the remainder of their lives. They’re also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $10,217* when they itemize.

*Based on a 3.6% charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
