Charitable Gift Annuities

Would you like to make a gift today, but have concerns about income for you or a loved one? 

A charitable gift annuity is a simple contract wherein the Sierra Club Foundation will pay fixed payments for the life of a donor’s designated annuitant in exchange for a donation to the Foundation. Considered to be part donation and part purchase of an annuity under contract, the fixed rate of payments is guaranteed for the life of the income recipients. 

A portion of that income is even tax free!

Please note that the Sierra Club Foundation does not offer legal, tax, or financial planning advice. You are encouraged to consult your own legal counsel, tax advisor, and/or financial planner.
