Deferred Charitable Gift Annuities

Support Elderhostel and Road Scholar Programs, receive fixed income for life.

A Deferred Charitable Gift Annuity creates a simple contract between you and Elderhostel. In exchange for your gift, Elderhostel will pay you a fixed income for life and/or the life of someone you designate. Each deferred gift annuity can benefit one or two individuals. Income payments must be deferred for at least one year from the date the gift is funded, and you can time payments to begin when you will need income most. Your gift will help Elderhostel provide programs in the future that are stimulating and enriching and contribute to healthy aging.
