Funding Sources for Charitable Gift Annuity
  1. Cash
  2. Certificates of Deposit (CDs)
  3. EE Saving Bonds: Matured EE Bonds pay NO additional interest upon maturity.
  4. Appreciated Stock: This is the funding source of choice when available. When the stock is transferred to the Foundation it does not trigger an immediate taxable event. Note: If the value of the stock is less than what you paid for it, sell the stock first.
  5. Mandatory distributions from IRAs: Funding a Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) with mandatory distributions after age 70 1/2 may provide a charitable income tax deduction offset for the taxes due on the mandatory distribution.
  6. Voluntary IRA Distributions: A slight variation on the above provides the opportunity for those over age 59 1/2 to take self-determined distributions while making a charitable gift, reduce or eliminate taxation on the IRA distribution and secure a steady income stream to supplement other retirement income.
