Charitable Lead Trusts

Charitable Lead Trusts are most appealing to wealthy donors who want to pass appreciated assets to their heirs without paying a substantial amount in taxes.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

Two basic types of charitable remainder trusts qualify for federal tax benefits. In both arrangements, a donor gives stock, cash or other assets to a trust. Those assets are invested, producing income for the donor or other beneficiary either for a fixed period of time or until the donor dies. The donor is allowed to claim a tax deduction for the estimated portion of the assets that will ultimately come to Lancaster General Health. When the donor dies, Lancaster General Health keeps all remaining assets. Read more...
