Charitable Gift Annuity

Gifts That Pay You Income

There's a way for you to support the Humane Society of the United States and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a charitable gift annuity. 

This popular planned gift can provide you with secure lifetime payments and allow us to further our work on behalf of all animals. The minimum CGA donation to the HSUS is $10,000, either in cash or with long-term appreciated stock. You qualify for a partial income tax charitable deduction, and a portion of your payments are tax-free throughout your life expectancy.

Like most of the other organizations that offer CGAs, we follow the suggested maximum rates set by the American Council on Gift Annuities. The HSUS has been offering CGAs since 1962, and we work with the Bank of New York Mellon to administer our program.

Gifts That Pay

Your payments depend on your age at the time of the donation. If you are younger than 60, we recommend that you learn more about your options and download this FREE guide Deferred Gift Annuities: Plan Now, Benefit Later.

An Example of How It Works

Couple smiling with their dog Dennis, 66, and Mary, 65, want to make a contribution to the HSUS but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $20,000 charitable gift annuity.

Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.4%, which means that they will receive $880 each year for the remainder of their lives. They're also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $6,819* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.

*Based on a 3.6% charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances. If you reside in New York, please contact us directly as your rates may vary slightly.
