Charitable Remainder Trust

A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) is a tax-exempt, irrevocable trust that pays income to a donor or other beneficiaries for a set term —either life or a designated number of years. At the end of the term, the remainder of the trust is donated to the designated charity.

Wills and Bequests are any gift — including personal property, stocks, bonds, jewelry, cash and real estate — given to an individual or organization through an estate plan, or will.
