Charitable Remainder Trust

This type of gift lets you avoid all capital gains taxes on the donated stock or real estate, receive an immediate income tax deduction, have income for life and make a significant gift to support our programs.


  • Offers great flexibility in meeting individual income and estate planning needs.
  • Pays either a fixed amount or a percentage of the trust assets as valued annually.
  • Provides an income tax deduction for a portion of the value of the assets transferred.
  • Funding a trust with long-term appreciated assets eliminates capital gains tax.
