Charitable Trusts

For 2009 Americans made charitable gifts estimated to be $303.75 billion.  Often, charitable giving is accomplished through the use of charitable trusts.  Our staff is experienced in the planning and administration of charitable trusts.  

Great flexibility and substantial tax advantage can be gained through the use of CHARITABLE LEAD TRUSTS and CHARITABLE REMAINDER TRUSTS.

Tax advantages of Charitable Trusts:

  •  Current charitable deduction for income tax
