Peace of Mind Gift Annuity
Many years ago, Clara bought a home. Since she was very pleased with the home, she bought stock in the company that built it. Over the years, Clara's stock has increased in value.
Clara: While the stock has gone up in value, I am concerned about the stock market. I am getting closer to retirement, and I think it would be much better to have a good fixed return rather than worrying about the ups and downs of the market.
Clara called Boys Home and spoke with a gentleman there. She discovered that with a charitable gift annuity, she could receive a return of almost 6.4%, based on her age. This fixed payment was in addition to a large income tax deduction. Clara decided to transfer $10,000 of appreciated stock to Boys Home.
Clara: I am delighted with my gift annuity. I receive a 6.4% return and saved over $1,500 in income taxes. This plan has been great. Best of all, I no longer have to watch the markets go up and down. I now have peace of mind and I feel great that I am able make such a substantial gift to "my guys" at Boys Home.*Please note: The names and image above are representative of a typical donor and may or may not be an actual donor to our organization.
