Act Now! Take Advantage of Higher Gift Annuity Payout Rates

A Charitable Gift Annuity is an opportunity for you to make a difference to people with MS and to receive a pre-determined pay­ment each year for life. These gifts can be established with cash or securities you (and an additional recipient, if you wish) will receive fixed annuity payments which will continue regardless of how long you and/or other recipients live.

Effective July 1, 2008, the suggested rates from the American Council on Gift Annuities will decrease because of current economic conditions. Therefore, if you are considering making this type of charitable gift, you can receive higher payments if you complete your gift prior to July 1, 2008. In this time of lower interest rates, gift annuity payments can be a way to gener­ate more useable income. We calculate payment rates based upon your age and amount donated.

If you are interested in learning more about gift annuities, contact Chapter President Leon LeBuffe or Executive Vice President Janelle Del Carlo at 310.479.4456 or 800.344.4867.
