Gifts That Pay You Income

You can leave your Legacy of Pride will also creating an income stream for you or your family.


A charitable remainder trust, or a CRT, is an irrevocable trust that generates a potential income stream for you or other beneficiaries, with the remainder going to Horizons. You can name yourself or someone else to receive a potential income stream for a term of years, no more than 20, or for the life of one or more non-charitable beneficiaries, and then name Horizons to receive the remainder.

With a CRT, you have the potential to take a partial income tax charitable deduction when you fund the trust, which is based on a calculation on the remainder distribution to Horizons.

There are two main types of charitable remainder trusts:

  • charitable remainder annuity trust distributes a fixed annuity amount each year, and additional contributions are not allowed.
  • charitable lead unitrust distributes a fixed percentage based on the balance of the trust assets (revalued annually), and additional contributions can be made.
