Charitable Remainder Trust

Under a Charitable Remainder Trust property or money will be donated to a charity although the grantor will continue to enjoy use of the property or receive income from it while he or she lives.

The main advantage of a Charitable Remainder Trust is that the grantor will continue to receive income while avoiding capital gains tax on the donated property.
