Gift Annuities

This gift pays you income. This is a life income gift that not only supports the mission of Manatee Community Action Agency, it also pays you a guaranteed fixed income for life. These types of gifts are generally simple to set up and do not require a large amount of investment. Upon your passing, the remainder continues to support the mission of MCAA.

Charitable Remainder & Charitable Lead Trusts

This gift pays you income. A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) is a life income gift that pays income to you and or your other beneficiaries for a term of years or until your passing. When the trust terminates, MCAA receives the remainder of the trust.

A Charitable Lead Trust (CLT) is a gift that makes annual contributions to MCAA for a term of years. The property then passes to your heirs with substantial tax savings. You can safeguard your estate for your heirs while you support MCAA.

Wills / Bequests

Some people believe that giving to charitable institutions through their will is only for the extremely wealthy. However, for every large, well-publicized charitable bequest, there are countless smaller ones arranged by people of all means, in all walks of life. Giving through your will can be an easy way to continue to support the programs and services at MCAA.

Life Insurance

MCAA may be named as the owner and or beneficiary of an existing or new life insurance policy.


Instead of contributing cash to MCAA, in-kind goods and services are also very valuable and necessary to keep the programs and services moving forward. For a list of needs, please contact Jill Gass, Director of Development at 941-554-7021 or email for more details.
