A gift that pays income to you or your loved ones
A charitable gift annuity (CGA) is a unique way to support WELS ministry. Make a tax-deductible gift and receive an income stream for life (or have the payments go to loved ones). This illustration shows how a CGA would work for someone who is 75 years old with payments beginning immediately. (Note that rates vary based on age. Payments can also be deferred to a future date.)
Some WELS members enjoy giving in this way so much that they have multiple gift annuities. One donor we worked with exclaimed to his WELS Christian giving counselor, “Charitable gift annuities are like potato chips; you can’t have just one!”
Contact your local WELS Christian giving counselor for more information and assistance.
