Do you care about the river, have appreciated assets, and need more income during your retirement?

A charitable gift annuity with CRC may be able to offer you immediate tax benefits, set income for the remainder of your life and the opportunity to leave a legacy gift to protect the river.

When you make a gift of $10,000 or more, you can increase your income and leave a gift to CRC with a charitable gift annuity.

You (or a designated beneficiary) will receive lifetime income from CRC, based on your ages at the time of the gift. You may opt to begin receiving payments in the current year or defer payments until a later time.

You benefit from an immediate income tax deduction and the removal of the asset from your estate. There may also be beneficial treatment of the annuity payments.

CRC recognizes the generosity of our members and friends who have made bequests, gift annuities and other planned gifts to CRC with membership in the Long River Society.

Contact Brett Morrison, Director of Development, to learn more about gift annuities or other legacy gifts. You may also reach him at 413-772-2020, ext. 218.

My CRC charitable gift annuity allowed me to turn unused assets into income that I am using in my retirement. And I appreciate knowing that I’m helping to protect the river for future generations.
