Charitable Lead Trust

To establish a charitable lead trust, you make a contribution of cash, stock, or personal property to fund a trust that pays Lees-McRae College income for a number of years. You receive an estate tax deduction at the time of your gift. After a period of time, your beneficiary receives the trust assets plus any additional growth in value.

Charitable Remainder Trust

To establish a charitable remainder trust, the donor makes a contribution of cash, stock, or personal property to fund a trust, and the trust pays the donor a percentage of the trust assets each year. There is the potential that your income could increase over time with growth in the trust. The remainder of the trust goes to Lees-McRae at your death.
