Planned Giving

If you have some assets that you would like to contribute to the Meeting, there's a way to do that, and earn yourself some money. With a Charitable Giving Annuity, if you make a gift through Friends Fiduciary Corp. with the Meeting as a beneficiary, you can earn a high interest rate and get federal tax benefits. At your death, whatever remains goes to the beneficiary. The interest earned is a function of age, with a minimum age of 50, and a minimum gift of $5,000.
