Charitable Gift Annuity

"The Salesians showed us how we could have income for life… and help the poor, too!"


We are delighted to inform you that the rates we pay annuitants on new gift annuities issued after July 1, 2018, will increase between .3% and .5%. This is the first increase since the economic downturn a decade ago. Given this good news, we hope you will consider establishing a gift annuity with Salesian Missions.

For example, with a gift of $10,000, an individual, age 75 will receive a rate of  6.2%, at age 80, the rate is 7.3%, and at age 90, the rate is 9.5%.

A Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) is a simple contract in which you transfer cash or securities to Salesian Missions, Inc. in exchange for guaranteed regular payments for life. We offer immediate, deferred, and flexible deferred Charitable Gift Annuities. The amount of each payment you receive is determined by your age when the annuity is funded. Salesian Missions follows the rates set by the American Council on Gift Annuities (ACGA).

A gift annuity allows you to give generously now while providing for your own future. It is an irrevocable gift that will have a lasting impact on our Mission work.

The minimum age requirement is 55 to 60 for a deferred gift and 60 for an immediate gift annuity. The minimum gift amount is $5,000.
