Charitable Remainder Trusts
Are a common technique, either during your lifetime or as a component of your trust, to provide a lifetime income stream to you (and your spouse) or to someone else (such as your friend or your child), with the remainder passing to one or more charities of your choice. If you create it to run for your lifetime, you can even reserve the right to change your mind as to which charity(ies) receive the balance at your death.
Designating the Right Asset to Pass to Charity at Your Death
Most people don´t realize that their will is the last place they should be inserting a gift to charity.
