Charitable Gift Annuities

We are pleased to partner with the Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties, Inc. to offer charitable gift annuities.

Many charitably-minded individuals may want to support Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust but are often concerned about having enough income in retirement. Some may worry about elderly parents or a loved one who many need their support. Fortunately, it is possible to make a gift that actually increases current or future income AND benefits our mission.

A charitable gift annuity is a simple way to generate income and support our long-term priorities. In exchange for a gift of cash, marketable securities or other assets, The Foundation will pay a fixed dollar amount, calculated as a percentage of your gift. The payment rate for a charitable gift annuity depends upon the beneficiary’s age; the older the beneficiary, the greater the payment rate and the greater the annual income.

You may be interested in a charitable gift annuity if…

  • You want to receive fixed payments for life
  • You want payments that will not fluctuate during your lifetime
  • You have assets that you are able to give away during your lifetime
  • You want to reduce your current income taxes with a charitable tax deduction
