Purchasing charitable gift annuities is one of the best decisions we have ever made. We get an excellent guaranteed rate of return for life (partially tax free) and an immediate tax deduction. Not only do we help sustain Public Citizen for decades to come, we appropriately diversity our investment portfolio and fulfill our charitable intent. It is a win in so many ways that it is practically a no-brainer. Robert Spiegelman, Member, Concord, New Hampshire
