Thank you for your consideration of making a gift through your Donor Advised Fund (DAF) or through your IRA RMD (Required Minimum Distribution), as a qualified charitable distribution.

When you choose to make a gift from your IRA that satisfies your required minimum distribution, ensure that your financial advisor notes the gift as a Qualified Charitable Contribution to a 501(c)3 such as Southern Nevada Public Television. This ensures that the amount of your donation is excluded from your taxable income, which is unlike a regular withdrawal from your IRA. Keeping your taxable income lower may reduce the impact of certain tax credits and deductions including Social Security and Medicare.

For further assistance in making a gift from your DAF or IRA contact your financial advisor or call the Major Gifts department at Vegas PBS 702.799.1010 x5499. (Your financial advisor will ask you for the following information on behalf of Vegas PBS).

Charitable Gift Annuities

How Charitable Gift Annuities Work

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 income for life. You must be at least 50 years of age.

The income you receive is determined by the amount of your gift and your age(s).

How It Works

You make an irrevocable gift of cash in the form of a check made out to CGA America. In exchange, our annuity provider CGA America pays you a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life. When you pass away, 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

Gift Annuity Rates Table

The income you receive from your charitable gift annuity is determined by the amount of your gift and your age when you make the gift. For rates at specific ages, see the table below. For other information, including charitable deductions, please contact us at or 702.799.1010 x5499

Vegas PBS uses the annuity rates approved by the American Council on Gift Annuities (ACGA). The ACGA reviews their rates at least every year, and they are subject to change.
