Deferred-Payment Gift Annuity

Deferred-Payment Charitable Gift Annuity Diagram

How It Works

  1. Transfer cash or other property to Colgate
  2. Colgate guarantees to make lifetime payments for up to two annuitants beginning at a future date of your choosing—minimum age 65 (You can establish a Flexible Deferred-Payment Gift Annuity if you aren’t sure when you would like to begin receiving payments.)
  3. Remainder to Colgate


  • Guaranteed payments for life that are favorably taxed
  • When gift is funded with cash, part of payment will be tax-free
  • When gift is funded with appreciated property, part will be taxed as capital gain, part will be tax-free, and part will be taxed as ordinary income
  • Federal income-tax deduction for a portion of your gift
  • Freedom to select the beginning date for your payments with a Flexible Deferred-Payment Gift Annuity
  • Gift will provide generous support for Colgate
