If you have any questions about Matching Gifts please send an email to Jgoolic@apdaparkinson.org The Charitable Gift Annuity Charitable giving doesn’t have to be a one-way proposition. It is possible to make a charitable gift and actually have a stream of payments flow back to you – all while generating valuable income tax benefits. A charitable gift annuity lets you do just that. A CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITY is simply a contract between a donor and a charity, such as the American Parkinson Disease Association, Inc., of a specified amount. We agree to make specified annual payments, paid in equal quarterly installments, for life to one or two beneficiaries. A DEFERRED GIFT ANNUITY allows a person to make a current gift, delay receipt of the payments until some pre-selected future date, and still qualify for an income tax charitable deduction now. For retirement-planning purposes, this date can be selected to coincide with the anticipated date of retirement. A charitable gift annuity to the American Parkinson Disease Association, Inc. offers many attractive benefits for the security-minded individual. It is a powerful planning tool.

It may not be possible for the American Parkinson Disease Association, Inc. to issue gift annuities in certain states.
