Approved by the American Council on Gift Annuities on April 24, 2018

The American Council on Gift Annuities (ACGA) Board of Directors held its semi-annual meeting on April 24, 2018. As part of a continual monitoring process, the Board reviewed the current assumptions inherent in our gift annuity rate schedules and approved an increase in the suggested maximum payout rates for charitable gift annuities. The rates will be rising by 0.30% to 0.50% for those ages where most annuity contracts are done. These new rates will become effective on July 1, 2018.

What is the American Council on Gift Annuities (the ACGA)?

The ACGA is the nation’s only 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to suggesting actuarially sound maximum charitable gift annuity rates. The ACGA rates are used by the vast majority of non-profits that issue gift annuities. This helps donors make their philanthropic decisions based on the missions of the charities they wish to support, and not on which charity pays the highest rates.
