Gift Annuity


A “Gift Annuity” is a written agreement by which you make an irrevocable gift to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith and receive - in return - a guaranteed payment for life. It binds the donor and the Society when the agreement is accepted and signed by both the donor and the Society.

The guaranteed payment remains the same for life. After your death, the remaining principal will be used for the support of needy missions around the world.
