Betty and John Wills established their first charitable gift annuity with The Whitworth Foundation in 1976. Thirty years later, their giving continues – they just established a third gift annuity. Betty and John understand the benefits of such gifts. They received a tax deduction when they made each one and they have received annuity payments equal to more than 150 percent of their original gift amounts. Upon their deaths, the Willses have directed that all remaining funds be added to the Whitworth College Endowment Fund. Betty, a member of the Whitworth Class of 1937, says "Gift annuities are a win-win for us and for Whitworth. I tell all my friends about the benefits." If you would like more information on how you, too, can benefit from a charitable gift annuity, please contact The Whitworth Foundation at 509.777.4362, 800.532.4668, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
