Charitable gift annuity rates just increased. A charitable gift annuity is a contract between you and Saint Joseph’s College where you make an irrevocable transfer of cash, marketable securities, or other approved assets. In return, Saint Joseph’s College agrees to make fixed payments to you—varying from 5.1 to 8.3%, depending upon age— for the remainder of your life.” — Nate Kaunley

When you choose to give, you become a catalyst in helping fulfill the mission of Saint Joseph’s College. Your gift is essential in helping the college nurture intellectual, spiritual, and social growth in students of all ages and all faiths within a value-centered environment.


  • Receive fixed payments for life;
