Secure your future and help end animal cruelty

With a Charitable Gift Annuity

Creating a more humane society can benefit you, too! Charitable Gift Annuities provide a way to create a legacy for animals now—and receive dependable payments for life—in exchange for a gift of at least $10,000 in cash or appreciated securities to the Humane Society of the United States. The rate of the payments is determined by age and number of annuitants (one or two). We’ve been offering this popular type of planned gift since 1962.

Sample one-life CGA rates

Age Rate Age Rate
65 4.2% 80 6.5%
70 4.7% 85 7.6%
75 5.4% 90 8.6%

Effective 7/1/2020; subject to change. Rates are set by the American Council on Gift Annuities. Please note that the HSUS does not offer gift annuities for residents of Alabama, Arkansas, Hawaii or North Dakota. If you reside in New York, please contact us directly as your rates may vary slightly.
