you are not familiar with the term life income agreements, think
of it as giving your money to New Orleans Baptist Theological
Seminary and having it too. Life income agreement is a term
that includes charitable
gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. These
gifts may be revocable or irrevocable and work like this:
you are 62 years or older, you can give NOBTS $10,000 or more
(the minimum gift to establish a charitable gift annuity). You
and/or a second beneficiary will receive income for
life from your gift. After the beneficiaries are no longer
living, your gift will be used by the Seminary for the purpose
you have specified. If you are under 62, the deferred
gift annuity is a great opportunity.
