What is a Divine Word Charitable Gift Annuity?


A Divine Word Charitable Gift Annuity is a simple contract between you and SVD Funds, Inc. (Society of the Divine Word).

The Benefits:

  • A percentage of your gift annuity can be deducted as charitable contribution.

  • A portion of the annual income received is also tax-free.

  • Annuitants share not only in the Society’s work but also in its graces and blessings.

  • Annuitants are remembered in the prayers and Masses offered by Divine Word Missionaries worldwide and are automatically enrolled in the Society’s Mission Mass League.

IRA Charitable Rollover

The Board of Directors of the American Council on Gift Annuities:  introduction of HR 5171, The Legacy IRA.
The bill extends the right of American taxpayers to use portions of their Individual Retirement Accounts to fund Charitable works through a non-profit religious organization during their lifetime. This compliments and completes the provisions of the PATH Act of 2015 which made the use of IRA assets for lifetime outright gifts permanent.
