Jeremy Arkin, director of Gift Planning, explains

As the year draws to a close, consider establishing charitable gift annuity (CGA) at Duke. Given the many benefits it may provide, it’s easy to see why a CGA continues to be our most popular deferred giving option.
To better illustrate how a CGA could work for you, Jeremy Arkin, director of Gift Planning shares this 3-minute gift illustration video shot on Duke’s campus.
A CGA can be part of a smart giving strategy because you can:
- Make an impact on the programs and places you love at Duke
- Receive a partial tax deduction in the year of the gift
- Have a fixed, guaranteed income for life
In short, with a gift of $10,000 or more, a CGA can provide future income for you and your loved ones while making a lasting impression on the Duke people and programs you are passionate about (scholarships, Athletics, Duke Gardens, etc.).
Take a look at some sample annuity rates below:

As always, we hope this information was helpful and thank you for considering a gift to this special place!
