Unlock the Power of Your Assets—You Hold The Key 

If you have savings or appreciated securities that are not paying you a satisfactory return, you can put those assets to work for you—and for Johns Hopkins.

Establishing a charitable gift annuity for the ultimate benefit of Johns Hopkins students and faculty will pay you (and/or another beneficiary) a fixed dollar amount each year for life. Rates are as high as 11.3%, based on your age(s) at the time of the gift.

Your charitable gift annuity assures you

  • a guaranteed income for life, based on an attractive rate, a portion of which is tax-free;
  • an immediate charitable income tax deduction;
  • favorable capital gains tax treatment on the value of the donated asset, if the annuity is funded with appreciated securities; and
  • that the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health can continue "Protecting Lives—Millions at a Time."

To find out more about how a charitable gift annuity can unlock the power of your assets and enhance your personal financial planning, please contact
