Charitable Gift Annuities

HOW CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITIES WORK

vpbs_annuity_v2-01b.jpg A charitable gift annuity can be established with a gift of $5,000 or more to Vegas PBS. In exchange for your gift, our annuity provider CGA America will pay you, and a second beneficiary, if you wish, income for life. Both income beneficiaries must be at least 60 years of age.

The income you receive is determined by the amount of your gift and your age(s). See our Gift Annuity Rates Table for rates at specific ages.


How it Works​

  1. You make an irrevocable gift of cash in the form of a check made out to CGA America.

  2. In exchange, our annuity provider CGA America pays you a fixed amount quarterly each year for the rest of your life.

  3. When you die, the remaining annuity principal passes to Vegas PBS to support quality public television programs.

Your Benefits

  • Generous, partially tax-free income for life

  • An immediate income tax deduction

  • Professional annuity administration by CGA America 

  • Membership in our Silver Legacy Society

  • The satisfaction of making a significant contribution to the future of public television
