Giving and Receiving (Vol. 90, No. 2)
By Robyn Weinstein Cimbol, Senior Director of Development & Philanthropy

We’ve all been admonished that, “If it sounds
too good to be true, it probably isn’t.”

I want to tell you about a special type of contribution you can make to Congregation Emanu-El that sounds too good to be true but really is true: Charitable Gift Annuities (CGAs).

This donation allows you to make a gift to
Congregation Emanu-El while also:
  • Making fixed-income payments quarterly to you (and
    your spouse, should you wish) for life at attractive rates
  • Providing future tax savings because a portion of the
    income you receive will be treated as a tax-free return
    of your own principal

  • Minimizing your liability for capital gains tax if you contribute appreciated securities
  • Qualifying you for membership in the temple’s exclusive Heritage Society
