Making a Gift of Income to Charity While Retaining Property in the Family

You may choose a Charitable Lead Trust to provide income to Penn College for a term of years.

You have an income tax deduction in the year of the contribution, equal to the present value of the total annual charitable gifts of income, as determined under IRS tables.

Because only the "remainder" interest, as determined under IRS tables in the year of contribution, is subject to (gift) tax, this type of trust can significantly reduce the estate, gift,and inheritance tax costs for transferring ultimate ownership of income-producing property to your heirs.

The income element and all future appreciation completely escape transfer taxes.

A minimum property value of $250,000 is required to establish a Penn College Charitable Lead Trust.
