South Carolina Charitable Gift Annuity Registration

Not required

Charitable Gift Annuity licensure is not required on the State level in South Carolina.

No filing is required, but charities need to meet certain conditions before issuing charitable gift annuities. South Carolina exempts charitable, religious, benevolent, and educational organizations from insurance laws related to charitable gift annuities as long as they have been in existence for at least 5 years. For-profit entities, including nursing homes, are not exempt.
