Planned Giving: Charitable Gift Annuities
At New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, a Charitable Gift Annuity can be established with a gift of $10,000 or more. If you are over the age of 62, in exchange for your gift to the Seminary (NOBTS), the Seminary will pay a specified annuity to you and, if you wish, another beneficiary. The payout rate is determined by the age of the beneficiaries and currently varies from around 6.3 percent to 12 percent. Call the Office of Development for the most current rates.
A portion of the payments to beneficiaries may be tax free. If you are over the age of 62 (minimum Gift Annuity issue age at NOBTS), you begin receiving your annuity payments immediately. After the beneficiaries are no longer living, the Seminary will use your gift for the purpose you specified.
