What is a Shaare Zedek Gift Annuity?

It’s a contract under which the American Committee for Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, Inc., (authorized under New York) commits to paying a fixed-rate lifetime annuity to one or two individuals in exchange for a contribution of cash or marketable securities.   The fixed annuity rate is based on the age(s) of the annuitants and is drawn from Shaare Zedek’s gift annuity tables for one life or two lives.

Why Purchase One Now?

In these difficult times, individuals need to be sure that their fixed income investments are secure, and that the rates they receive are high enough to help them with their costs of living during retirement.  Solid charitable organizations like the American Committee have been making regular and timely payments to annuitants for years during all kinds of investment markets.  Our gift annuity reserve fund, required to be sufficient under regulations of the New York State Insurance Department, assures our annuitants that their payments will always be made.
