Deferred Gift Annuity
Future Planning for Everyone's Benefit
How it works
You transfer cash, securities or other property to the American Heart Association.
Beginning on a specified date in the future, the American Heart Association begins to pay you, or up to two annuitants you name, fixed annuity payments for life.
The principal passes to the American Heart Association when the contract ends.
- You receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your gift.
- You can postpone your annuity payments until you need them, such as when you reach retirement or when a grandchild begins his or her college education.
- The longer you defer your payments, the higher the effective rate you will receive. In the meantime, the principal grows tax-free.
- You can have the satisfaction of making a significant gift now that benefits both you and the American Heart Association later.
