Anthea Durón is not only a lover of trees and nature, she is a world traveler and a smart business woman. Having spent a good part of her professional career as a travel writer and editor, Ms. Durón has had an opportunity to witness many of the world’s natural wonders and diverse habitats.

Learning as a young child the beauty and excitement of being outdoors, and walking in the forests with her grandparents, she has made a lifelong connection with nature and the environment.

As Ms. Durón considered her options for charitable contributions and lifetime income, she found a very favorable interest rate with a Arbor Day Foundation charitable gift annuity. “I like the fact that I’m getting 8.8 percent interest, a tax deduction, and I’m supporting the Arbor Day Foundation,” says Ms. Durón. “They have such a worthwhile mission.”

“I started with a single charitable gift annuity, and the process went so smoothly that I’ve done a second,” continues Ms. Durón. “I just feel good about the fact that I’m helping to plant trees in the world, educating young children about nature and the environment, and creating a legacy that will last for many generations to come. The world is so beautiful, and I’ve seen so many special places, it is our responsibility to do our part to keep it green and healthy.”
