Charitable Gifts Annuities

If you’d like to support our mission and receive steady payments during your retirement years, a charitable gift annuity may be right for you.

How It Works:
Through a simple contract, you agree to make a donation of cash, stocks or other assets to Congregational Church of Hollis. In return, you receive (and someone else, if you choose) a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life.
In addition to providing a gift to the Congregational Church of Hollis and receiving fixed payments for life, you also receive these benefits:

Your initial gift is partially income tax–deductible.
Your charitable gift annuity payments are partially income tax–free throughout your estimated life expectancy.
Your payments are not affected by ups and downs in the economy.
The gift annuity can be for one or two people, so your spouse or another loved one can also receive payments for life.
If you use appreciated stock to make a gift, you can usually eliminate capital gains tax on a portion of the gift and spread the rest of the gain over your life expectancy.
Please contact your financial advisor, CPA, or estate planning attorney to discuss whether this strategy may be beneficial. For questions, clarifications or if you choose to give, please call 603-465-7797 or email giving@hollischurch.org to contact us.
