With a charitable lead trust, a predetermined amount of the trust’s assets will be given to St. Jude annually for a set period of time. Afterward, the remainder of the funds can be transferred to the trust’s non-charitable beneficiaries — usually family members. Setting up a charitable lead trust may reduce or even eliminate gift and estate taxes on trust assets passing to family.
Charitable remainder trusts allow for assets to be irrevocably transfered, and your client and his or her beneficiaries will receive payments from the trust for life, or another time period of their choice. The remainder of the trust then goes to St. Jude.
Most people do not use all of their retirement assets during their lifetime, and those unused assets can be used to make a gift to St. Jude.
A retirement plan can be a tax-efficient and simple way to include St. Jude in an estate plan. The best method is to name St. Jude as a beneficiary. Because charities do not pay income taxes on the donations they receive, distributions to St. Jude will not be taxed as income.
Additionally, a paid-up life insurance policy can be given to St. Jude, or even a policy on which premiums are still being paid.
