Gift Annuities

  • Want an opportunity to support Olivet's mission while also securing reliable income for the rest of your life? Establish a Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) with Olivet.
  • Creating a Charitable Gift Annuity with Olivet is a convenient way to make a contribution that benefits both you and the University. Your investment will provide steady, fixed payments for the rest of your life.

    Gift Annuities provide you with a number of options. You can decide to establish either a One-Life Gift Annuity (income is paid to a single person for life) or Two-Life Gift Annuity (income is paid to two people for life).

    If you’re ready to make a contribution to the University, but don’t need to receive Annuity payments immediately, you can establish a Deferred Gift Annuity. This will delay income payments from your Annuity to a future date and allow your payout rate to appreciate.

    You can also designate the Gift Annuity payments to a third party, such as a child, friend or sibling.

    Funding a Gift Annuity  

    A Charitable Gift Annuity can be established through Olivet with a minimum contribution of $10,000. Types of donations include: cash, appreciated stocks and bonds, and real estate.
