Charitable Lead Trust

An Example of How It Works


Father smiling with childrenGeorge would like to support the Foundation and provide for his children. George received a windfall amount of income and needs a large income tax deduction to offset the income. Following his advisor's recommendation, George funds a grantor charitable lead annuity trust with assets valued at $1,000,000. George's trust pays $70,000 (7 percent of the initial fair market value) to the Foundation each year for 15 years, which will total $1,050,000. After that, the balance in the trust reverts back to George. He receives an income tax charitable deduction of $854,311. Assuming the trust earns an average 6 percent annual rate of return, George receives approximately $767,240 at the end of the trust term.
