Charitable Gift Annuity

Gifts That Pay You Income

There is a way for you to support St. John Fisher University and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a charitable gift annuity. 

With a charitable gift annuity you agree to make a gift to Fisher and we, in return, agree to pay you (and someone else, if you choose) a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life. The balance is used to support our work.

This type of donation can provide you with regular payments for life and allow Fisher to further our mission. You can also qualify for a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction if you itemize.

Gifts That Pay

Your payments depend on your age at the time of the donation. If you are younger than 60, we recommend that you learn more about your options and download this FREE guide Deferred Gift Annuities: Plan Now, Benefit Later.
