Charitable Lead Trusts

Provide for your loved ones and Goodwill-Easter Seals

Do you want to benefit from the tax savings that result from supporting Goodwill-Easter Seals, yet you don't want to give up any assets that you'd like your family to receive someday? You can have it both ways with a charitable lead trust.

There are two ways charitable lead trusts make payments:
A charitable lead annuity trust pays a fixed amount each year to Goodwill-Easter Seals and is more attractive when interest rates are low.

A charitable lead unitrust pays a variable amount each year based on the value of the assets in the trust. With a unitrust, if the trust's assets go up in value, for example, the payments to Goodwill-Easter Seals go up as well.
