Charitable Gift Annuity

USC

How It Works

  • You transfer cash or securities to USC. Our minimum for new gift annuities is $20,000.
  • USC pays you, yourself and a spouse, or any two beneficiaries you name, fixed income for life.
  • Beneficiaries are recommended to be at least 65 years of age at the time of the gift.
  • The remaining balance will be applied by USC to the purpose you stipulated when you signed the annuity contract.

Benefits

  • Receive dependable, fixed income for life in return for your gift.
  • In many cases, receive payments at a rate higher than the interest you are currently receiving from stocks, CDs, or savings accounts.
  • Receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your gift.
  • A portion of your annuity payment will be tax-free.
