Gifts That Pay You Income

There’s a way for you to support St. John’s Health Foundation and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a Charitable Gift Annuity.

A Charitable Gift Annuity can provide you with regular payments and allow us to further our work. You can also receive a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction.

Gifts That Pay

Your payments depend on your age at the time of the donation. If you are younger than 60, we recommend that you learn more about your options and discuss them with your advisor as well as our professional staff at the Foundation.


An Example of How It Works

Dennis, 66, and Mary, 65, want to make a contribution to St. John’s Health Foundation but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $20,000 charitable gift annuity.

Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.3 percent, which means that they will receive $860 each year for the remainder of their lives. They’re also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $5,544* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.

*Based on annual payments and a 2.4 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions vary based on income earned.
