Charitable Lead Trust
This type of trust makes payments, either a fixed amount (annuity trust) or a percentage of trust principal (unit trust), to charity during its term. At the end of the trust term, the principal can either go back to you (a grantor lead trust) or to heirs named by you (a non-grantor lead trust). You may claim a charitable income tax deduction for funding a grantor lead trust or a charitable gift tax deduction for funding a non-grantor lead trust. Since lead trusts are typically used to pass assets to heirs, non-grantor lead trusts are far more common than grantor lead trusts.
When you decide to leave assets to charity in your will, you are making a bequest. Your estate will receive a charitable estate tax deduction upon your death when the gift is made to Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County.
Charitable Remainder Trust
This trust makes payments, either a fixed amount (annuity trust) or a percentage of trust principal (unit trust), to whoever chooses to receive income. You may claim a charitable income tax deduction and may not have to pay any capital gains tax if the gift is of appreciated property. At the end of the trust term, the charity receives whatever amount is left in the trust. Charitable remainder unit trusts provide some flexibility in the distribution of income, and thus can be helpful in retirement planning.
Retained Life Estate
You may make a gift of your personal residence or farm to charity and retain the right to live there for the remainder of your life. You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the gift. At your death, the charity can use or sell the property.
