I make an annual contribution to Memorial Sloan- Kittering Cancer Center.  By 
doing so, I have become aware of a means of making a donation called a Gift 
Annuity.  The idea behind the gift annuity is to make a large lump sum donation 
to which you retain the rights to a 7% to 12% return on the donated money, until
you die.  Upon your death, all of the money remains with the organization to 
which your gift was made.

I am curious as to whether or not cryonic suspensions could be funded in such a 
way.  One of the main reasons that I have not signed up for cryonic suspension 
yet is that I need the return on my savings for living expenses.  Were it 
possible to pay for suspension in a way similar to the gift annuity I would sign
up tomorrow.  Any thoughts?
