A Charitable Gift Annuity can be a way for you to increase your income and leave a charitable legacy for generations to come. In today's interest rate environment, a charitable gift annuity can give a donor a substantial increase in income over what they could typically earn from a CD or other fixed income investment. A person can take an asset that is not producing a large amount of income, such as a stock or CD, and gift it to the Minot Area Community Foundation for a charitable gift annuity.
In addition to the increased income, you are entitled to take a current income tax charitable deduction and, in certain cases, a North Dakota Income Tax Credit for a percentage of the gift. The Annuity can pay you (and your spouse, if you choose) a lifetime income. The remaining principal becomes a permanent endowment fund with the Foundation, benefiting future generations forever.
