Did you know that now is the perfect time to create a charitable lead trust? Historically low IRS discount rates provide a wonderful opportunity to make a gift to Rhode Island Hospital Foundation and transfer assets to your heirs—with significantly reduced tax consequences.
This gift option is the opposite of a charitable remainder trust. A donor places assets in a trust to generate annual income for Rhode Island Hospital Foundation, usually for a fixed number of years. When the term of years ends, the trust terminates and the assets pass to the donor’s heirs.
Features of a Charitable Lead Trust
A charitable lead trust:
- Provides initial annual support for Rhode Island Hospital Foundation
- Allows you to transfer assets to your heirs with sharply reduced gift or estate taxes
- Can be established either during your lifetime or through your will
