Dunham Trust Company recommends you authorize our senior trust officers to work in tandem with your trusted financial professionals.

Such trusts are used to develop a vehicle for donations to a favorite charity, which also allows for the reduction of income taxes through a charitable deduction and favorable tax treatment at the date of the gift by non-recognition of built-in-capital gains.
