Charitable Lead Trusts 2018-04-09T07:37:00+00:00


A Charitable Lead Trust allows the donor to reduce beneficiaries’ taxable income by donating a portion of the trust’s income to charities and after a specified period of time, transferring the remainder of the trust to the beneficiaries.

A charitable lead trust is designed to reduce estate taxes after the donor passes away. This is accomplished by donating to charities from the estate until taxes have been reduced. Once this is accomplished, the estate is transferred to the designated beneficiaries, who typically will face much lower taxes.
