For over 45 years, the Fresno Regional Foundation has been helping residents give back to the region they love. We are the trusted steward for charitable giving in our region.
If you've been following the Fresno Regional Foundation for more than a few years, you might have witnessed our remarkable growth. This growth has allowed us to expand our services and programs. It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you our newest program, Charitable Gift Annuities.
Simply, a Charitable Gift Annuity is an agreement between you and FRF. You give cash or securities to us, and we pay you a check for a fixed amount for the rest of your life. This can be for you and/or your spouse. The only requirements are that you be 65 years or older and the amount you give us must be at least $25,000. For example, if you are 70 years old and give $50,000, we will send you a check for $212.50 every month (or $637.50 every quarter, your choice) for the rest of your life.
The result of this agreement is financial security for you and a generous gift to FRF. Plus, there can be significant charitable deductions for income tax purposes. A gift annuity is a wonderful way to help your community while we help you!
