(land, primary residences, vacation homes, farm land, for example) can be donated to the Foundation and deducted at full fair market value, up to 30 percent of one’s adjusted gross income. The Foundation sells the real estate and the net proceeds capitalize a new fund or are added to an existing fund. Similarly, tangible personal property can be donated to the Foundation, which is also then sold.
A charitable remainder trust
allows you (or other named beneficiaries) to receive lifetime income. Upon your death the remaining principal creates a fund at the Foundation. You receive an immediate charitable deduction for a portion of the gift and avoid capital gains tax.
A charitable lead trust
creates income for the Foundation for a specified period, after which the remaining principal is distributed to named beneficiaries. Gift and estate taxes are reduced with this type of gift.Click here to view Full Discussion of Gift Options.
