Charitable Gift Annuities. A CGA could offer you additional income throughout the year with a good interest rate while being able to help C.E. CGAs allow a person to make an investment in a loved charity through an initial donation. As long as the donor lives, that donation will pay a periodic payment with an interest rate determined by the donor's age. The donation continues to generate payments for the donor unless he or she outlives the donated amount. Upon the donor's death, the remaining donated funds become the property of the charity. This allows people to put money toward a favorite charity, provide additional income with tax advantages, and reduce worry that the donor will run out of money by giving straight donations.
