Annuities: Gifts that Keep on Giving

It is one of the best investments and most impactful gifts you can make.

For donors 60 years of age and older, a charitable gift annuity is a way you can make a significant gift to your congregation and/or another area of The Presbyterian Church in Canada and receive a guaranteed income at a fixed rate for life.

Benefits to you

  • A higher rate of return than GICs or bonds
  • Never worry about investment risk again
  • Guaranteed income for life for you (and your spouse, if you wish)
  • Receive an immediate one-time charitable tax receipt
  • A good portion (and sometimes all) of the income is tax-exempt
  • Leave a significant legacy gift to your congregation and/or another area of the church you care about after you die
