Ways To Donate

Charitable Gift Annuity:
When you establish a charitable gift annuity with the Oblate Annuity Trust (minimum $5,000), you will receive annual fixed payments for the rest of your life (minimum age 59 ½). The annuity rate is based on the donor’s age at the time the charitable gift annuity is established. You will also receive a one-time charitable deduction for the year the gift is made.  Read more

Wills:
