Tip of the Day

Charitable Gift Annuities offer a stable alternative to the fluctuations of the market.

AARP Foundation's simple gift plan makes fixed lifetime payments to up to two beneficiaries at rates higher than those of most bonds and CDs.

While a gift annuity is not meant to be competitive with a commercial annuity, it does share the feature of paying part of the donor's contribution back as a tax-free return of principal. Careful investment management also allows AARP Foundation to offer a gift plan that is increasingly attractive to donors. It allows you to make a significant gift while securing income and tax benefits.
