Charitable Remainder Trust Fundamentals


Listen for the magic words donors say so you can catch the CRT opportunities.

A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) can enable donors to realize charitable goals that would otherwise seem beyond their reach. In its simplest form, a CRT is a giving tool that permits a donor to make a gift to charity while retaining a cash flow for life. The CRT is a powerful combination of tax, finance, charitable and estate planning made possible by dedicating today a gift to charity in the future while reserving a lifetime cash flow.
