A gift to the University of Minnesota, lifetime income for you

Support research into brain, nerve, and muscle disorders at the University of Minnesota and receive steady income for life with a charitable gift annuity. Through a simple contract, you agree to make a donation of cash, stocks, or other assets to the Minnesota Medical Foundation. In return, we agree to pay you a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life.

In addition to providing future support for the University’s important work and receiving lifetime fixed payments, a charitable gift annuity offers benefits:

  • Your gift is partially tax-deductible.

  • Your gift payments are partially tax-free throughout your estimated life expectancy.

  • Your payments are fixed—unaffected by ups and downs in the economy.

  • The gift annuity can be for one or two people, so your spouse or another loved one can also receive payments for life.

  • If you use appreciated stock to make your gift, you can eliminate capital gains tax on a portion of the gift and typically can spread the rest of the gain over your life expectancy.

To receive a personalized example illustrating how a charitable gift annuity can work for you, contact Catherine McGlinch of the Minnesota Medical Foundation at 612-626-5456 or
