Life Income Gifts

CHARITABLE REMAINDER TRUSTS

With a charitable remainder trust, you can make a gift to March of Dimes and receive income at the same time. A charitable remainder trust is established by making an irrevocable transfer of cash, securities, real estate or other non-cash assets to a trust in exchange for an annual income for life or a term of years.

BENEFITS

  • Life income—You and other named beneficiaries receive income for life or a term of years.
  • Income growth potential—To the extent the trust principal grows over time, your payment will also depend on the type of trust you establish.
  • Income tax deduction—You receive an immediate charitable income tax deduction at the time you transfer assets to the trust.
  • Capital gains tax savings—Appreciated assets transferred to a charitable remainder trust can be liquidated free of capital gains tax.
  • Estate tax savings—All assets transferred to a charitable remainder trust are removed from your estate and will not be subject to estate tax.
