Charitable Gift Annuity

When you are looking for ways to help Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League with our mission, you shouldn't feel like you are choosing between your philanthropic goals and financial security. One gift that allows you to support The League's work while receiving fixed payments for life is a charitable gift annuity.

Not only does this gift provide you with regular payments and allow us to further our work, but when you create a charitable gift annuity with The League you can receive a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.

A Charitable Gift Annuity may be established to benefit Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Inc. through the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. There is a minimum age of 70 years and a minimum contribution of $50,000.

An Example of How It Works

Couple smiling Say that Justin, 70, and Mary, 70, want to make a contribution to The League that will support our work for generations to come, but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $50,000 charitable gift annuity with the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties for the specific benefit of The League. Based on their ages, they will receive a payment with the rate established by the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties at the time the contract is entered. For example, at a rate of 5 percent, they would receive $2,500 each year for the remainder of their lives. They’re also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $16,182* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.

*The percentages used for payment rate and income tax deduction in this scenario are approximations for illustration only. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.

A donor advised fund is an account that you set up but which is managed by a nonprofit organization. You contribute to the account, which grows tax-free. You can recommend how much (and how often) you want to distribute money from that fund to The League or other charities. You cannot direct the gifts.

An endowed gift can create a new endowment or add to an existing endowment. The principal of the endowment is invested and a portion of the principal’s earnings are used each year to support our mission.

Tax on the growth in value of an asset—such as real estate or stock—since its original purchase.

Securities, real estate or any other property having a fair market value greater than its original purchase price.

Real estate can be a personal residence, vacation home, timeshare property, farm, commercial property or undeveloped land.

A charitable remainder trust provides you or other named individuals income each year for life or a period not exceeding 20 years from assets you give to the trust you create.

You give assets to a trust that pays our organization set payments for a number of years, which you choose. The longer the length of time, the better the potential tax savings to you. When the term is up, the remaining trust assets go to you, your family or other beneficiaries you select. This is an excellent way to transfer property to family members at a minimal cost.

You fund this type of trust with cash or appreciated assets—and may qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize. You can also make additional gifts; each one also qualifies for a tax deduction. The trust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to The League as a lump sum.

You fund this trust with cash or appreciated assets—and may qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize. Each year the trust pays you or another named individual the same dollar amount you choose at the start. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to The League as a lump sum.

A beneficiary designation clearly identifies how specific assets will be distributed after your death.

A charitable gift annuity involves a simple contract between you and the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties to benefit Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, where you agree to make a gift to The League 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.
