How a charitable remainder unitrust works

  1. You transfer cash or assets to fund a charitable remainder unitrust.
  2. In the case of a trust funded with appreciated assets, the trust will then sell the assets tax-free.
  3. The trust is invested to pay income to you or any other trust beneficiaries you select based on a life, lives, a term of up to 20 years or a life plus a term of up to 20 years.
  4. You receive an income tax deduction in the year you transfer assets to the trust.
  5. Our organization benefits from what remains in the trust after all the trust payments have been made.
