Charitable Trusts

Charitable Trusts (for Family)

A planned gift can not only benefit people in need through CCM; but also you and your loved ones. If you are looking for a way to pass on some of your assets to your family while reducing or eliminating gift or estate taxes, a charitable trust is an excellent option.

Benefits of a charitable trust

  • Receive a gift or estate tax charitable deduction
  • Pass inheritance on to family at a reduced or zero cost
  • Establish a vehicle from which you can make annual gifts to charity

There are two main types of charitable trusts – Charitable Lead Trusts (CLT) and Charitable Remainder Trusts (CRT).

1. Charitable Lead Trust

A charitable lead trust is established either during life or at the time of death. It pays its income, or “lead interest,” to Crisis Control Ministry, typically for a stated number of years. After the trust terminates, the assets inside the trust are then distributed – either back to you or to your heirs.

2. Charitable Remainder Trust
A charitable remainder trust allows you to provide income to yourself or others for life or a term of years. At the end of the trust term or at your death, the trust will terminate and the remainder assets will be distributed to Crisis Control Ministry.
