Charitable Remainder Trust
Solutions for Large Donations
Are you looking to make a significant impact on the future of Albion College? If you have built a sizable estate and also are looking for ways to receive reliable payments, consider a charitable remainder trust. With this arrangement, you or other named individuals receive income each year for life or for a term of up to 20 years from the assets you give to the trust. At the end of the trust term, the balance in the trust goes to Albion College.
Not only are these gifts a great way to promote the leaders of tomorrow, they may offer you tax benefits as well. There are two ways to receive payments and each has its own benefits:
The annuity trust pays you, each year, the same dollar amount you choose at the start. Your payments stay the same, regardless of fluctuations in trust investments.
The unitrust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. The amount of your payments is redetermined annually. If the value of the trust increases, so do your payments. If the value decreases, however, so will your payments.
Your payments depend on your age at the time of the donation. If you are younger than 60, we recommend that you learn more about your options and download this FREE guide Plan for Retirement With a Deferred Gift Annuity.

An Example of How It Works
Susan, 75, wants to make a gift to Albion College but would also like more income in the future. Susan creates a charitable remainder unitrust with annual lifetime payments to her equal to 6 percent of the fair market value of the trust assets as revalued annually. She funds the trust with assets valued at $500,000.
Susan receives $30,000 the first year from the trust. Subsequent payment amounts vary each year depending on the annual valuations of the trust assets. She is eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $276,880* in the year she creates and funds the trust. This deduction saves Susan $88,602 in her 32 percent tax bracket.
*Based on annual payments and a 3.2 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
