Sample Bequest Language

Donors may leave a legacy gift to Gulf Coast Community Foundation in a variety of ways. This document provides recommended language based on the methodology your clients choose. 




Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) Rates

A CGA is an excellent way to provide clients or their loved ones with a guaranteed stream of income for life. Gulf Coast uses the American Council on Gift Annuities suggested rate chart to determine the rates used in charitable annuities. For more information or an illustration of a CGA, please contact us.

This document lists many of the benefits and options to consider for gifts of non-cash assets, including real estate, businesses, closely held stock, collections, and more.
