How to Give

Not only do you have options for how your gift will be used, you also have options on what to give and how to give. There are gifts that cost you nothing now, gifts that pay you income, and gifts that allow you to decide what happens when.

Charitable Gift Annuities

Supporting University of Alabama Huntsville Foundation through life-income gifts can be mutually rewarding.

Charitable Gift Annuities (CGA) help you give meaningful support to UAH while providing you with income for life or a specified period of years. The remainder of the CGA will be left to the UAH scholarship or the programmatic fund of your choice.

UAH has partnered with the National Gift Annuity Foundation to offer CGAs you can fund with cash, stock, savings accounts, money market funds, or a CD. You'll receive payments for life and a tax deduction for the year you make the gift.

There's a CGA option for everyone ages 55 and up. If you're still working, you can fund an annuity today and schedule to receive payments when you plan to retire. If you're nearing retirement or already retired, you can defer your payments or receive them right away.

Immediate Gift Annuity

You can make your gift, take a tax deduction, and receive annuity payments immediately.

Deferred Gift Annuity

Take an immediate deduction and defer retirement payments. Deferment allows for more extensive and less taxed payments.

Flexible Gift Annuity

You can specify a range of possible starting dates for the annuity payments to begin. The longer you wait to receive payments, the higher the payout rate and the larger your income payments will be.
