mc_animCharitable Gift Annuities from Any of the Masonic Charities Provide...

During this festive Holiday Season, we in the Office of Gift Planning extend sincere best wishes to you and your loved ones. We also invite you to explore, in complete confidence and at no cost or obligation, how a Charitable Gift Annuity with your favorite Masonic Charity might benefit you. Simply complete and return the accompanying response coupon or call to speak with one of our Gift Planning officers in the region nearest you. Since non-cash gifts can take longer to complete than gifts of cash, consider getting an early start in the gift planning process if you are considering funding an annuity with appreciated stock.

Sample Gift Annuity Payment Rates*:

*Rates recommended by the American Council on Gift Annuities, effective July 1, 2004. Two-life rates are less due to added life expectancy.
bullet Fixed Payments - Every check is the same
bullet Appealing Payments - The rates are very attractive
bullet Lifetime Payments - They last as long as you do
bullet Partially tax-free payments - They continue for your life expectancy
bullet Dependable payments backed by the assets of the Masonic Charity issuing the annuity
bullet Welcome Federal Income Tax savings resulting from the gift portion of the annuity, provided you itemize your return
bullet Favorable treatment of any Capital Gains Tax liability when funded by appreciated stock that you have owned for at least a year and a day
bullet A satisfying opportunity to realize important personal and charitable goals
