As the country's only nonprofit dedicated to suggesting maximum charitable gift annuity rates, the work of the American Council on Gift Annuties (ACGA) benefits donors as well as the charities that they support by advancing and promoting responsible philanthropy.

Our members are vital to our organization. The inspiring work of your nonprofit organization motivates us to evolve and innovate new ways to help keep your charitable mission thriving.

Your membership in the ACGA helps preserve a long-time pillar of the philanthropic community and allows our volunteer board to continue the essential work we’ve been doing for 90 years:

  • Sound suggested maximum Charitable Gift Annuity rates. The ACGA’s suggested gift annuity rates are the industry standard which adds credibility to your donor relationships and your organization’s gift annuity program.
  • Professional development, valuable connections, and quality training opportunities. The ACGA has consistently brought together top experts in the field of charitable giving to train and mentor our members and all who want to attend our renowned biennial planned giving conference. Attendees have the opportunity to connect and collaborate with colleagues and allied professionals as they gain new insights about planned giving techniques, marketing and administration.
  • Critical role in state gift annuity regulation, legislation and appropriate consumer protection. The ACGA monitors and responds to state gift annuity regulation issues that arise from time to time. Membership in the ACGA gives each organization that issues Charitable Gift Annuities an opportunity to have impact on the regulatory process in their state and underscores your commitment to ethics, accountability and appropriate consumer protection for your donors.

ACGA members enjoy discounts, access to exclusive resources, and are listed in the online membership directory of the ACGA’s website. The ACGA is committed to creating value in what you do for your donors and prospects, providing confidence to your leaders that your program is sound and operating in a manner consistent with the industry standard.
