A Charitable Remainder Trust provides to you, or the beneficiaries of the trust, with income, tax benefits and the ability to make a significant impact on your community during your lifetime.
A charitable remainder trust is a special type of irrevocable trust funded with cash or appreciated assets. It is designed to reduce the Donor's taxable income by dispersing income to the Beneficiaries of the Trust for a period of time up to 20 years and donating the remainder of the Trust to ECU Health Foundation.
You may choose for others to receive payments, such as a spouse, children, or grandchildren. At the end of the trust term, the remaining amount in the trust is given to ECU Health Foundation to advance your cause.
