Trust Glossary

Charitable Remainder Trust - An irrevocable trust with both charitable and non-charitable beneficiaries. The grantor transfers highly appreciated assets into the trust and retains an income interest. At expiration of the income interest, the remainder in the trust passes to a qualified charity of the grantor's choice. If properly structured, the CRT permits the grantor to receive income, estate, and/or gift tax advantages. These advantages often provide for a much greater income stream to the income beneficiary than would be available outside the trust.
