Life Income/Charitable Trusts
Charitable trusts offer an opportunity to make a substantial gift to The Campaign for Utah Athletics without forfeiting the annual income produced by these assets. You retain income for your life, and the life of your spouse, and the corpus of the trust account is transferred to Utah Athletics upon the death of the surviving spouse. This gift can also be structured to create a substantial tax break over a period of years. Through the creative process of planned giving, incorporated within your comprehensive estate plans, you can fulfill philanthropic goals, reduce income taxes, avoid capital gain and estate taxes, retain a life income, increase spendable income, or reduce the costs of estate settlement.
You can enjoy the rewards of a planned gift, while also supporting Utah Athletics. For more information about specific planned giving strategies that can help you and The Campaign for Utah Athletics, please contact us today.
