Charitable Gift Annuities

You can transfer money to a charitable gift annuity and receive income for life.

This plan allows you to give a substantial donation to HelpMeSee while receiving tax-favorable income for life. Interest rates on charitable gift annuities are reliable and usually more attractive than certificates of deposit (CDs) and other bank rates. Benefits include:

  • Very attractive rates of return.
  • Payments are made monthly.
  • Depending on your age, all or a portion of the income will be tax-free.
  • Immediate tax receipt for a portion of your gift.
  • The residual portion of the gift can be designated according to your wishes.
  • Your gift passes to HelpMeSee outside of the estate process.

If you have any questions, please email Steven Moore at steven@helpmesee.org. Thank you for your support.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

You can earn income for yourself or a beneficiary while supporting HelpMeSee’s mission to bring the miracle of vision to the world’s poverty-stricken. A charitable remainder trust (CRT) enables you to preserve or improve your financial security and make the miracle of vision part of your legacy.

You may realize a significant benefit by transferring property to a trust that will eventually be a charitable gift to HelpMeSee. Benefits include:

  • A gift that is made during your lifetime or created through your will.
  • Tax savings realized with a charitable gift receipt.
  • Gifting over time when permissible.
  • Ensures your assets are distributed as you intended.
  • Potential for favorable tax treatment of certain capital gains properties.
