Blazing a Trail for the Foundation

Blazing a Trail for the Foundation

Charitable Gift Annuity Featured Donor and former Friends of NRA Committee Member: H.L. "Pete" Taylor, Missouri

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.

Giving to Get Something Back: Charitable Gift Annuities

One of the best financial choices in an uncertain economy is one that will pay you a fixed income. What would be even better is for that income to come from an organization you care about.

The NRA Foundation can send you a check every quarter or annually for the rest of your life. And the amount of your check remains the same regardless of whether the economy rises or falls. You can count on it because we back every Charitable Gift Annuity with the total assets of The NRA Foundation and the NRA.

The amount you receive is determined in advance and depends on several things, including your age and the amount you give to establish the annuity. For example, if you're 75, you'll receive more than someone who is 65 who gives the same amount.

Furthermore, for the rest of your life, you can enjoy the satisfaction that your annuity will provide The NRA Foundation with long-term, needed financial resources. By choosing The NRA Foundation to help you with lifetime support, you enable us to serve future generations through our programs.

The IRS favors these arrangements and provides the donor with an income tax charitable deduction. It is a way the government encourages the private sector to support charities. Year in and year out, charitable gift annuities are among the most popular life-income planned giving vehicles.
