Charitable Gift annuity


If you’re looking for ways to support Snowbird, a charitable gift annuity may be a great choice. Cash gifts are always appreciated, but this type of gift allows you to make a difference while also reaping benefits for yourself and your loved ones. 

What is a charitable gift annuity?

A charitable gift annuity is an arrangement that involves giving assets to charity in exchange for a stream of income payments. You may give cash, stocks or mutual funds to a charity that you value, and in return, you receive a lifelong stream of income. At your death, the charity receives any remaining assets, which can be used to fund the charity’s mission. There are numerous variations on the theme, and you can add complexity or customize the strategy according to any legal limitations.

How a Charitable Gift Annuity Works

A charitable gift annuity is a contract between you and Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters.

  1. You transfer cash or property to Snowbird.
  2. In exchange, we sign an annuity contract and promise to pay fixed payments to you for life. The payment can be quite high depending on your age, and a portion of each payment may even be tax-free.
  3. You will receive a charitable income tax deduction for the gift portion of the annuity.
  4. More Students, families, and churches get equipped to impact this generation with Gospel message of Jesus Christ.


Charitable giving may provide tax deductions, help manage capital gains taxes, and potentially save you money by simplifying your estate.

You might want to maximize during your lifetime. But, if you give too much, you could limit your remaining income for retirement. On the other hand, if you leave money to a charity only at your death, you won’t receive any potential tax benefits today.
