Gift Annuity Receipt

  • 1.  Gift Annuity Receipt

    Posted 28 days ago

    I have a donor who has paid $50K via credit card to establish a gift annuity.  The immediate income tax deduction is $22,371.  Is there special language that I need to include aside from the immediate tax deduction I need to include?


    Thank you.

    Maybe I'm confused because I don't know a lot about gift annuities but... I would think the tax deduction has no place on correspondence unless you're the donor's tax advisor. "No goods or services...." unless that's not true. What's deductible is not a part of a fundraiser's wheelhouse. Just my two cents and I apologize if I've misunderstood your question. ��

    Actually, receipts for most irrevocable deferred gifts are somewhat specialized.  Many organizations, therefore, use their gift planning software (Crescendo, PGCalc, etc.) to produce the receipt.  Yes, you can use a standard receipt protocol for these.  "Thank you for your payment of $50,000 for which you will receive a steady stream of income over the next X years, therefore, making your tax-deductible contribution $22,371."  Or words to that effect.  But that's messy.

    If you use one of these planned giving packages I would take a peek at their receipts.
