Two of the most common types of charitable trusts are charitable lead trusts and charitable remainder trusts. These two categories are further broken down into more specific categories depending on how the distributions from the trusts are structured.
- Charitable remainder trusts (CRT) are trusts that benefit your beneficiaries with a current income stream; after a specified period of time or upon their passing, ownership of the assets in the trust then vests in a charity.
- A charitable lead trust (CLT) is a trust that benefits the charity with a current income stream; after a specified period of time, ownership of the assets in the trust then vests in the beneficiaries, typically the children or grandchildren.
