Charitable Gift Annuity  Flexible Payment Diagram

How it Works

  • You transfer cash or securities to MDA.
  • You select a date range in the future when you will want to start payments.
  • In the future, you select a date in the date range for payments to begin.
  • Beginning on the specified date, MDA begins to pay you, or up to two annuitants you name, fixed annuity payments for life.
  • The remaining balance passes to MDA when the contract ends at the death of the last beneficiary.


  • Receive dependable, fixed income for life in return for your gift.
  • Flexible start date allows you to alter the beginning of payments in the future, to meet your changing needs.
  • Deferral of payments permits a higher annuity rate and generates a larger charitable deduction.
  • The longer you wait to start payments, the higher your payment will be.


  • The minimum gift requirement is $10,000.
