                                           EXHIBIT A
                                      Disclosure Statement

Per the Charitable Gift Annuity Agreement, guaranteed payments of the amount indicated will be made
to the annuitant for life.

With a gift annuity, you simultaneously make a charitable gift and provide guaranteed payments for life
to yourself and/or another person. The fact that you are making a charitable gift may entitle you to
income, gift and estate tax deductions.

Because a charitable gift is involved, the annuity rates offered by the THCF are lower than those
available through commercial annuities offered by insurance companies and other financial institutions.

These annuity payments are a general obligation of the Truman Heartland Community Foundation
(THCF), and they are backed by all of its assets. As of December 31, 2005 the fair market value of the
THCF’s assets exceeded $24 million. These assets are invested primarily in publicly traded stocks, bonds
and mutual funds.

The THCF was established in 1994. Responsibility for governing the organization is vested in a Board of
Directors comprised of not less than nine persons, who are elected by the current Board of Directors
and serve with no compensation.

Common investment funds managed by the THCF are exempt from registration requirements of the
federal securities laws, pursuant to the exemption for collective investment funds and similar funds
maintained by charitable organizations under the Philanthropy Protection Act of 1995 (P.L. 104-62).
Information in this statement is provided to you in accordance with the requirements of that Act.
