Provide for Your Loved Ones and University of Houston-Victoria

Do you want to benefit from the tax savings that result from supporting University of Houston-Victoria, yet you don't want to give up any assets that you'd like your family to receive someday? You can have it both ways with a charitable lead trust.

There are two ways charitable lead trusts make payments: 
charitable lead annuity trust pays a fixed amount each year to University of Houston-Victoria and is more attractive when interest rates are low.

charitable lead unitrust pays a variable amount each year based on the value of the assets in the trust. With a unitrust, if the trust's assets go up in value, for example, the payments to University of Houston-Victoria go up as well.

George would like to support University of Houston-Victoria 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 University of Houston-Victoria 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.

*Assuming annual payments and a 3.2 percent charitable midterm federal rate.
