Charitable Gift Annuities
Charitable gift annuity is a simple arrangement that allows you to make a substantial gift to the College and lock in a secure lifetime income for you and/or a loved one. Unlike a trust, you contribute your gift directly to Manhattan College. The College then agrees to pay you a fixed income based on a percentage of the gift. Gift annuities come in all sizes, beginning with as little as $10,000. The College’s pledge is stated in a legal contract and is backed by the full faith and credit of the College.
