Make a Charitable Gift to The Salvation Army

A Charitable Gift Annuity is a great way to give. The first step is to request our special booklet, The Charitable Gift Annuity - A Gift That Gives Back. You can do so today by clicking here and completing a simple form.

Immediate Gift Annuity

A Salvation Army Gift Annuity is part gift, part investment. In return for an irrevocable minimum gift of $5,000 in either cash or stocks, the Salvation Army provides a fixed, lifetime payment for one or two lives.

Beneficiaries must be at least 55 years of age to receive payments. The rate of return is based on your age - the older, the higher the rate. Rates for immediate-payment single life annuities currently start at 4.0% for a person aged 55, and increase to 9.0% for a person aged 90 older.

You also receive tax benefits not available with commercial annuities, and provide much-needed support for the work of The Salvation Army Southern New England Division.

Advantages of a Gift Annuity

  • You make a gift to The Salvation Army and receive income for life.
  • Your rate of return is fixed, and backed by the full resources of The Salvation Army.
  • Part of your income is tax-free for many years.
  • If you make your gift with appreciated securities, you lower your capital gains taxes.
  • A portion of your gift is tax deductable in the year that the gift is made.
  • You reduce or eliminate any applicable estate taxes.
  • Because you can designate the Salvation Army program or service that will benefit from your gift, you have the joy of supporting work that is important to you.
