After creating his first charitable gift annuity in 1993, Pete Taylor was proud to be the first annuitant with The NRA Foundation. When he completed his eighth annuity in 2008, totaling $80,000, Pete realized that his relationship with the NRA now extended deeper than he ever expected. His Charitable Gift Annuities ensured his income for life and potentially reduced his estate taxes. They enabled him to make a significant difference in the NRA programs close to his heart.
Pete once said: "The best part of an annuity is knowing that I'm still able to take care of my family while enjoying the knowledge that I've made a difference. My contribution helps me see the future, and I rest easier knowing I'm a part of it."
Pete was born in northeast Missouri and spent most of his life there on the family farm. He was a row crop farmer. He enjoyed bird hunting, quail and pheasants mostly. He was a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Sadly, Pete passed away in 2015 at the age of 90. To Pete, we are eternally grateful; your gift makes a difference every day.
