Charitable Lead Trust
You can benefit from the tax savings that result from supporting Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League 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 Peggy Adams:
A charitable lead annuity trust pays a fixed amount each year to Peggy Adams 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 Peggy Adams go up as well.

An Example of How It Works
George would like to support Peggy Adams and receive tax benefits. 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 $60,000 (6% of the initial fair market value) to Peggy Adams each year for 15 years, which will total $900,000. After that, the balance in the trust reverts back to George. He receives an income tax charitable deduction of $770,960. Assuming the trust earns an average 8% annual rate of return, George receives approximately $1,637,530 at the end of the trust term.
