Protect Your Assets
You can benefit from the tax savings that result from supporting Stoneleigh-Burnham School without giving up the assets that you'd like your family to receive someday with a donation in the form of a charitable lead trust.
There are two ways that charitable lead trusts make payments to Stoneleigh-Burnham:
A charitable lead annuity trust pays a fixed amount each year to Stoneleigh-Burnham and is more attractive when interest rates are low.
A charitable lead unitrust pays a variable amount each year 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 Stoneleigh-Burnham go up as well.
An Example of How It Works
Georgia would like to support Stoneleigh-Burnham and provide for her children. Georgia received a windfall amount of income and needs a large income tax deduction to offset the income.
Following her advisor's recommendation, Georgia funds a grantor charitable lead annuity trust with assets valued at $1,000,000. Georgia's trust pays $70,000 (7 percent of the initial fair market value) to Stoneleigh-Burnham each year for 15 years, which will total $1,050,000. After that, the balance in the trust reverts back to Georgia. SHe receives an income tax charitable deduction of $854,311. Assuming the trust earns an average 6 percent annual rate of return, Georgia receives approximately $767,240 at the end of the trust term.
*Assuming annual payments and a 3.2 percent charitable midterm federal rate.
