Charitable gift annuities
Make an investment in education. Enjoy the peace of mind of receiving an income now and making an impact later.

Get tax benefits
Receive an immediate tax receipt for a portion of your gift. Depending on your situation, fixed income payments that you and your co-annuitant receive may be tax-free.
Simplify asset management
McGill’s endowment fund is rigorously managed by seasoned professionals. Placing funds in a charitable gift annuity could help reduce money management worries.
