WebinarJoin us on October 30th at 1PM ET for our webinar, Vital Signs: Understanding Key Metrics for a Healthy Charitable Gift Annuity Pool with Crystal Thompkins, CAP®, CSPGCMNational Director of Gift Planning Services, Vice President, BNY Mellon Wealth Management Planned Giving group

While Charitable Gift Annuities (CGAs) are beneficial instruments for giving, there are risks associated with managing a CGA program. The over-arching risk is that the charity is on the hook for making lifetime payments to all annuitants and therefore must maintain a level of assets to support those payments, but there are other underlying risks. In order to sustain a successful CGA program, it is important to understand all of these risks and their potential impact as well as the key metrics used to analyze those risks. Understanding, analysis and diligent monitoring can help mitigate risk and promote a healthy gift annuity program.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the risks of a CGA pool
  2. Identify and understand the key metrics for monitoring risk
  3. Identify red flags that indicate problems within a pool by reviewing sample CGA pool data
  4. Learn tips for mitigating further risk in a problem pool
