Gifts That Pay You Income

You can receive income for life while you leave a legacy of help and hope for impoverished families across the globe.

If you are considering a gift that pays you a steady income for life, we recommend that you consult with your financial advisor and a gift planner at Heifer Foundation.

You can transfer money to a charitable gift annuity and receive income for life.

This plan allows you to give a substantial donation to the Heifer while receiving tax-favorable income for life. Charitable gift annuities offer attractive payout rates for those who want to provide for those living “on the margins” for generations to come, while maintaining a steady stream of income.
