If 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:

If 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.
