The Joy of Giving . . . And Receiving!
A Disciples Gift Annuity is another way you may participate in our mission.
A Disciples' Gift Annuity is a contract in which you agree to give the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ either cash or appreciated securities. In exchange for your gift, you will receive guaranteed payments at a fixed rate for the remainder of your lifetime.
Your Legacy for Years to Come
With a Disciples
you not only provide for yourself a source of income for the future, you also are supporting the life and mission of the Sisters for years to come.
Your Disciples' Gift Annuity will provide the resources needed to continue the contemplative life of the Sisters as well as their works of evangelization. That is, you actually become a participant in this work of God.
Why Are Annuities So Popular?
Annuities are popular for many reasons, such as:
Guaranteed fixed income that is not subject to the ups and downs of the stock market. Age has its benefits: the older you are (and/or your income beneficiary) at the time you make your gift, the higher your rate -- as high as 10.5%! Additionally, a portion of the income you receive may be tax-free, increasing your effective yield.
Because your gift will ultimately support our mission work you are entitled to a charitable deduction in the year you make your gift. It will usually be approximately 50% of the fair market value of what you contribute. We can help you and your advisors determine your exact deduction.
You could choose to receive income now -- or defer it until a future date when you or your beneficiary may need it for your financial goals -- for example, to supplement retirement income. Additionally, you may choose to be paid quarterly, semi-annually or annually, on a schedule that you and your advisors determine is best for you and your family.
Your income is guaranteed and backed by ALL of the assets held by the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The recommended minimum age for income beneficiary is 55.
$5,000 for single-life annuity, and $10,000 for double-life annuity. (U.S. Dollars)
