Charitable Remainder Trust

A charitable remainder trust (CRT) is an arrangement that will provide you or someone else income AND a gift to Kimochi.

  • Here’s how it works: A CRT involves the irrevocable transfer of cash, securities, or other property to a trust, managed by a trustee of your choice. You or others receive income from the trust for life or for a set number of years. After the passing of the income recipient(s), or the set number of years ends, Kimochi receives the assets remaining in the trust.

  • You’ll be eligible for an income tax charitable deduction for the year in which you establish a CRT. The deduction is based on the projected value of the ultimate gift to Kimochi.

  • There are two basic types of charitable remainder trusts:

    • A charitable remainder unitrust provides a fluctuating annual payment based on a percentage of the trust’s assets as revalued each year. If the assets grow, the beneficiaries will receive a larger annual payment.

    • A charitable remainder annuity trust pays a fixed dollar amount each year, regardless of how the trust investments perform. This arrangement ensures stable income to the designated income beneficiary.
