Gifts That Pay You Income

There's a way for you to support Soka University of America and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a charitable gift annuity. 

With a charitable gift annuity you agree to make a gift to SUA and we, in return, agree to pay you (and someone else, if you choose) a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life. The balance is used to support our work.

This type of donation can provide you with regular payments for life and allow SUA to further our mission. You can also qualify for a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction if you itemize.

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 download this FREE guide Deferred Gift Annuities: Plan Now, Benefit Later.

An Example of How It Works

Couple smiling Dennis, 66, and Mary, 65, want to make a contribution to SUA 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 3.9%, which means that they will receive $780 each year for the remainder of their lives. They're also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $4,878* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.

*Based on a 1.2% charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
