Charitable gift annuity
Support the environment and receive payments for life
There's a way for you to support Environmental Defense Fund and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a charitable gift annuity.

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 Plan for retirement with a deferred gift annuity.
An example of how it works
Dennis, 74, and Mary, 72, want to make a contribution to EDF but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $20,000 charitable gift annuity.
Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.3 percent, which means that they will receive $960 each year for the remainder of their lives. They're also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $7,402* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.
*Based on annual payments and a 2.4 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions vary based on income earned.
