When you are looking for ways to help Saint Michael's College with its mission, you shouldn't feel like you are choosing between your philanthropic goals and financial security. One gift that allows you to support Saint Michael's College's work while receiving fixed payments for life is a charitable gift annuity.
Not only does this gift provide you with regular payments and allow us to further our work, but when you create a charitable gift annuity with Saint Michael's College you can receive a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.
Currently, Saint Michael's College partners with The Vermont Community Foundation (VCF) to issue charitable gift annuities to Saint Michael's donors. In this partnership, the annuities are issued by VCF, and backed by all of its assets. The remaining value of the contract at termination is set aside solely for the benefit of Saint Michael's College in a special fund from which the College receives an annual distribution.
Delay Your Payments
If you are younger than 60 or don't need your payments immediately, you can set up a deferred gift annuity. This allows you to delay receiving payments until a later date—such as when you reach retirement. To learn more, view and download the FREE guide Plan for Retirement With a Deferred Gift Annuity.
