Charitable Gift Annuity

Of all life-income gifts, the charitable gift annuity (CGA) is the most popular. You can supplement income in retirement or provide income to aging parents, for example, with a simple donation and contract.

Make a gift of $10,000 or more in cash or securities to The ALS Association and in return we will provide guaranteed, fixed lifetime income to you and/or a loved one. When the contract ends, the remainder is used in support of the Association’s mission.


  • Fixed quarterly or annual lifetime income at an attractive annuity rate
    • Safe from fluctuations in the market
  • Income can go to up to two beneficiaries jointly or successively
  • Immediate charitable deduction and partial income tax benefits for years to come
  • Possible capital gains tax savings if you fund the CGA using appreciated securities
  • Choose between immediate payouts or deferred payouts for higher annuity rates and a larger charitable deduction


  • Irrevocably donate cash or securities totaling $10,000 or more to The ALS Association
  • Beneficiaries must be at least age 60 at the time of the gift
  • Completion of a simple application and agreement
