ACGA Membership Reminder

Strengthen your charitable mission! Your partnership is vital to ACGA’s ability to provide:

  • Sound Suggested Charitable Gift Annuity rates. ACGA’s suggested gift annuity rates are the industry standard which adds credibility to your donor relationships and your organization’s gift annuity program. Simply, without it you lose third party validation with administrators, donors, families, professional advisors and prospects.
  • Quality training opportunities. ACGA has consistently brought top experts in the field of charitable giving to train and mentor our members and all who want to attend our renowned planned giving conference- the longest running conference in the planned giving profession.
  • Appropriate consumer protection. ACGA monitors and responds to state gift annuity regulation issues that arise from time to time. Membership in ACGA gives each organization that issues Charitable Gift Annuities an opportunity to have impact on the regulatory process in their state.
