Charitable Trusts

A charitable remainder trust is a gift plan that allows you to provide income to yourself or others while making a generous gift to Earlham.

The kind of income that is paid out can be a fixed dollar amount (as with an annuity trust) or an amount that varies from year to year (as with a unitrust).

Benefits include:

  • You can name yourself, your spouse, or other loved ones as the income beneficiaries. The income beneficiaries you name will receive annual income for life, or for the period you designate. 
  • You will qualify for a federal income tax deduction.
  • If you fund the trust with a long term appreciated asset (one you have held for more than one year) and the trust sells it, there will be no immediate tax on the capital gain.
  • The remaining proceeds from the gift come to Earlham to support whatever purpose you designate

Minimum Gift Required: $100,000
