Charitable Gift Annuities

A charitable gift annuity provides fixed payments for life, in exchange for a gift of cash or securities to Massachusetts General Hospital. Gift annuities are easy to set up, and the payments you receive are backed by the general resources of Mass General.

A charitable gift annuity could be right for you if you are at least 60 years old and want to:

  • Increase your income with generous, fixed lifetime annuity payments.
  • Save on income taxes or capital gains taxes.
  • Receive income that is partially free of tax.
  • Make a gift of $10,000 or more to Mass General.

Deferred Charitable Gift Annuities

Like a gift annuity, a deferred charitable gift annuity provides fixed payments to you for life in exchange for your gift of cash or securities. The payments start on a date you choose that is at least one year after you make the gift.
