Charitable Lead Trust

Protect Your Assets

If you want to make an impact now at Central Catholic High School and also provide for your family later, consider setting up a charitable lead trust. You transfer cash or other assets to a trust that makes payments to Central Catholic High School for a period of time. When the term is up, the remaining trust passes to your family or other beneficiaries you select.

There are two ways that charitable lead trusts make payments to Central Catholic:

A charitable lead annuity trust pays a fixed amount each year to Central Catholic and is more attractive when interest rates are low.

A charitable lead unitrust pays a variable amount each year to Central Catholic based on the value of the assets in the trust. With a unitrust, if the trust's assets go up in value, for example, the payments to Central Catholic go up as well.

An Example of How It Works

ROTC holding a flag in the middle of a football field. George would like to support Central Catholic and provide for his children. George received a windfall amount of income and needs a large income tax deduction to offset the income. Following his advisor's recommendation, George funds a grantor charitable lead annuity trust with assets valued at $1,000,000. George's trust pays $70,000 (7% of the initial fair market value) to Central Catholic each year for 15 years, which will total $1,050,000. After that, the balance in the trust reverts back to George. He receives an income tax charitable deduction of $955,700. Assuming the trust earns an average 6% annual rate of return, George receives approximately $767,240 at the end of the trust term.

*Based on a 1.2% charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
