Charitable Gift Annuities

Lifetime income gifts, like charitable gift annuities, are wonderful solutions for Christians who wish to give in a substantial way, but may be concerned about having enough retirement income. 

新葡京app与巴纳巴斯基金会合作,使像您这样的支持者能够提供高达50美元的礼物,000 from your IRA to fund a gift annuity. In exchange for this gift, the Barnabas Foundation will make fixed annual payments to you based on your age, for as long as you live. Also, if you are 73 or older, these gifts count toward the required minimum distributions from your IRA, and since they are directed to a charity, they are tax-free. It’s a win-win for you and Eastern Christian!

Who it’s for

  • Individuals 70 ½ or older
  • 那些想要进行慈善捐赠的人,将其计入所需的最低分配额
  • Those who want to reduce their taxable income
  • If you are under 65, you may want to consider a Deferred Charitable Gift Annuity, where payouts start after you hit a certain age


  • Receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your gift
  • Annuity payments are guaranteed for life, backed by a reserve and the assets of the Barnabas Foundation
  • Annuity payments are partially tax free, making them more valuable than fully taxable income of the same size

How it works

  1. Transfer cash or securities to the Barnabas Foundation.
  2. The Barnabas Foundation will pay you a fixed income for life. The amount depends on the size of the transfer, and how old you are.
  3. The remaining funds pass to Eastern Christian School when the contract ends, creating a meaningful impact.

我们建议您咨询合格的遗产规划律师或财务顾问,以确定这是否是您的正确选择. EC is proud to provide you with complimentary access to trusted, biblically-based conversations with a Christian estate planner through the Barnabas Foundation regarding a possible gift annuity.
