Good for you. Good for the redwoods.
There's a way for you to support Save the Redwoods League and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a charitable gift annuity (CGA).
This type of donation can provide you with regular payments and allow us to protect and restore redwood forests. You can also qualify for a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.
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, Deferred Gift Annuities: Plan Now, Benefit Later.
"A charitable gift annuity actually offered a higher yield than our current investments, plus tax deductions. How could we say no to doing well by doing good?"
—Pam Rozelle, Redwood Legacy Circle Member

An Example of How a CGA Works
Phillip, 66, and Mary, 65, want to make a contribution to the League 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 3.9%, which means that they will receive $780 each year for the remainder of their lives. They're also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $6,183* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.
*Based on a 2.0% charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
