Over the course of your lifetime, you have come to understand that giving back to a special cause is an important part of who you are. At Livens & Reed, PLLC, we help people make sure their religious affiliation and favorite charitable causes remain an important part of the family legacy.

How You Give Is Just As Important As Who You Give To

In addition to the tax deduction available for direct gifts to 501(c)(3) religious and charitable organizations, some common trust options include:

  • Charitable remainder annuity trust (CRAT): An irrevocable trust that pays out a fixed dollar amount to the charity of your choosing typically paid on a monthly or annual basis.
  • Charitable remainder unity trust (CRUT): A predetermined percentage of the trust earnings will be paid to the charity of your choice.
  • Charitable lead trusts: You determine the number of years your selected charity will receive a distribution, after which time the assets of the trust may be distributed to the beneficiaries of your choosing.
