What is a Charitable Gift Annuity?

A Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) allows you to make a charitable gift to LightHawk while also receiving fixed payments for life. By transferring cash or appreciated assets to LightHawk in exchange for a CGA, you can secure reliable income for yourself or a loved one, receive a current charitable tax deduction, and support our conservation mission. CGAs provide a unique opportunity to make a meaningful impact on conservation while also providing financial security.


  • Lifetime Payments: Enjoy payments for yourself or your beneficiary throughout life.
  • Immediate Tax Deduction: You may receive an instant income tax deduction for a portion of your contribution.
  • Secure Annuity: Rest assured knowing your lifetime annuity is backed by LightHawk’s reserves and assets.
  • Tax Efficiency: Benefit from annuity payments being treated as a blend of ordinary and tax-free income.
  • Fulfillment and Impact: Experience the satisfaction of making a significant gift that benefits you now while contributing to LightHawk’s ongoing efforts to protect and preserve landscapes, waters, and wildlife for present and future generations.
