KVIE Gift Annuities

Are your CDs earning enough?
Barbara is a retiree and loyal KVIE viewer. She recently took a KVIE gift annuity, which guaranteed her a fixed payment (in her case, 8.1 percent on her $10,000 commitment).

Instead of stressing about the volatile market or settling for weak CD rates, she gets a strong, predictable check and will get that same payment every year for the rest of her life. Then, the remainder will become a gift to KVIE.

It’s easy, uncomplicated – and the return rate is guaranteed. Plus there’s a nice tax deduction, and most of the income is tax-free.

The minimum amount is $10,000 and rates are based on the donor’s age. It’s a simple two-page contract, and there are no legal fees.

To learn more, contact Kevin Smith-Fagan at legacy@kvie.org or
916) 641-3595.
