Give a Charitable Gift Annuity: Income for Life
By creating a charitable gift annuity at Golden West Foundation, you can generate income for yourself or a loved one, and provide a significant gift to Golden West Foundation at your death.
Benefits: This is a great way to provide a secure and stable income for you or a loved one. Your annuity payments are treated as part ordinary income, part capital gains income (15%), and part tax-free income. You also have the satisfaction of making a gift to Golden West Foundation now and for the future.
How it works: Transfer cash or security to Golden West Foundation and we will pay your or your designee a life-time annuity based on your age. We accept annuity gifts of $10,000 or more and our minimum age is 65. When the contract ends, the principal passes to Golden West Foundation to fund our work for seniors of Boulder County.
