Leave a Legacy: Charitable Gift Annuity

Leave a Legacy: Charitable Gift Annuity

Discover how to maximize your gift and create a legacy.

Donate to Barrow with a planned gift

A gift that pays you for life…

Create an income for life and a legacy that supports research, patient care, and education at Barrow.

The concept of a gift annuity is simple. You donate assets to Barrow Neurological Foundation and we invest them. You will receive a fixed-income payment each year and continue to receive that payment for life. With the volatility of the stock market, this is a great way to support Barrow and receive a steady income. You can give a gift of cash or stock and potentially receive a partial income tax deduction. In 2022, Congress passed the SECURE ACT 2.0, which gives you the one-time opportunity to create a $50,000 Charitable Gift Annuity with IRA assets. You must be at least 70.5 years old.
