A Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) with Lighthouse International or The Jewish Guild for the Blind, which are affiliates of Lighthouse Guild, provides a fixed income for life, in return for your gift of cash or appreciated securities.

You must be 55 years of age or older to establish a charitable gift annuity. The minimum gift is $5,000. 

With a charitable gift annuity you can support our work while receiving a guaranteed income for the rest of your life.

Annuities may be set up for one or two lifetime-income beneficiaries, and you will receive an immediate charitable income tax deduction.

All you’ll need to do is contact us to set up a CGA agreement, and then determine whether you would like to use cash or appreciated securities to fund your gift annuity.

Here are sample annuity rates based on age for a single-life immediate payment gift annuity. We follow the most recent rates, which were established by the American Council on Gift Annuities as of January 1, 2012.
