Deferred Gift Annuity

DGA Diagram

How It Works

  • You transfer cash or securities to Defenders of Wildlife .
  • Beginning on a specified date in the future, Defenders of Wildlife begins to pay you, or up to two annuitants you name, fixed annuity payments for life.
  • The remaining balance passes to Defenders of Wildlife when the contract ends.

Note:

  • You must be at least 55 to begin receiving payments.
  • The minimum gift requirement is $5,000.

Benefits

  • Deferral of payments permits a higher annuity rate and generates a larger charitable deduction.
  • You can target your annuity payments to begin when you need them, such as retirement or when a grandchild needs help with tuition payments.
  • The longer you defer payments, the higher the effective rate you will receive.
