A charitable gift annuity is a simple agreement between you and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
A NewYork-Presbyterian gift annuity pays you and/or another beneficiary a fixed annual income for life. Part of your income may be tax-free, increasing the overall return to you, or taxed at the more favorable capital gains rate. Your annuity income payments are backed by the assets of NewYork-Presbyterian.
With an immediate payment annuity, your income payments begin right away. With a deferred gift annuity, your income payments begin at a future date that you specify. Because payments are deferred, you receive a higher annual income, which may be used as a source of guaranteed retirement income.
Here is a sample of the current rates for single-life gift annuities:

When you establish an annuity, you are entitled to an immediate federal income tax deduction for a portion of your gift. Your deduction is based on the size of your contribution, the annuity payment rate and the age(s) of your income beneficiary(ies). With a deferred arrangement, you receive a higher immediate income tax deduction.
With a gift of appreciated property, you can amortize payments of long term capital gains taxes. You can also realize significant estate tax savings.
A gift annuity is established with an irrevocable gift of cash or marketable securities. The minimum contribution required is $10,000, and income beneficiaries for both immediate and deferred annuities must be at least 65 years old when payments begin. Your annuity is administered by BNY Mellon at no cost to you.
Note: As you consider any charitable gift plan, please consult with your tax or financial advisor to determine the tax/financial implications for you and your family.
