Gift Annuities

You can support the work of the Center for Inquiry and also, receive a fixed income for life. There are so many advantages to a charitable gift annuity (CGA). Where should we start? If you are unfamiliar with the concept of a CGA, here is a simple explanation.

First, you make a donation to the Center for Inquiry and we, in turn, pay you a fixed amount for the rest of your life. It can also be set up as a joint and survivor annuity, covering two lives.

Second, you will receive the same payment (set up on a schedule that fits your needs) with no concern about market fluctuations, and also receive immediate tax benefit and future tax-free income. The interest rates are based on the age when you take out the annuity.

Third, you can know that after your death the remaining balance will be used by CFI to continue the important work of fostering a secular society based on science, reason, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values.

We would be happy to run a no-obligation personal gift annuity calculation showing you the benefits that you can receive. Please contact the development office at 1-800-818-7071 or e-mail
