Charitable Gift Annuity

How It Works

You transfer cash or securities to Penn Medicine.

Penn Medicine pays you, or up to two annuitants named by you, a lifetime annuity.

The principal passes to Penn Medicine when the contract ends.


  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your gift.

  • Your lifetime annuity is backed by a reserve and the full assets of Penn Medicine.

  • Your annuity payments are treated as part of ordinary income, part capital gains income and part tax-free income.

  • You have the satisfaction of making a significant gift that benefits you now and Penn Medicine later.
