Charitable Gift Annuity

A Charitable Gift Annuity with Moody is a contract under which you transfer cash or publicly traded securities to Moody and Moody agrees to pay a fixed amount of money to one or two individuals for a lifetime

Flowchart: Donor funds a charitable gift annuity with stock or cash. The donor receives fixed gift annuity payouts and the Moody receives the remainder after all payouts have been made.

Benefits of a charitable gift annuity

  • Support the important work of Moody Bible Institute while caring for the needs of you and your family
  • Receive an immediate tax deduction for a portion of your gift, at the time your gift is made
  • Secure fixed payments for life to you or to you and a loved one.

How a charitable gift annuity works

A charitable gift annuity is a contract between you and Moody Bible Institute.

  1. You transfer cash or property to Moody Bible Institute.
  2. In exchange, we sign an annuity contract and promise to pay fixed payments to you for life. The payment can be quite high depending on your age, and a portion of each payment may even be tax-free.
  3. You will receive a charitable income tax deduction for the gift portion of the annuity.
  4. You also receive satisfaction, knowing that you will be helping further our mission.

If you decide to fund your gift annuity with cash, a significant portion of the annuity payment will be tax-free. You may also make a gift of appreciated securities to fund a gift annuity and avoid a portion of the capital gains tax. Please contact us to inquire about other assets that you might be able to use to fund a charitable gift annuity.

Additional Information

Deferred charitable gift annuity (for payments at future date). Perhaps you are not ready to begin receiving payments until a future date, such as when you retire. With a deferred gift annuity, you establish the gift annuity today, receive a charitable income tax deduction this year, but defer the payments until a designated date sometime in the future. Best of all, because you deferred the payments, your annual payment will be higher when the payments start than they would have been with a current gift annuity.
