creating a charitable legacy the enhanced charitable trust
Creating a Charitable Legacy: The Enhanced Charitable Trust

Enhanced Charitable Trust is a charitable lead annuity trust (CLAT) that guarantees a charitable gift through purchase of a life insurance policy

You receive:

  • Now—Charitable income tax deduction

Charity receives:

  • During your lifetime—Annual income stream
  • At your death—Large lump-sum payment

Your family receives

  • At your death—Remaining trust assets
enhanced charitable trust how does it work
Enhanced Charitable Trust: How Does it Work?
  • You gift an asset to the trust
  • You receive a current charitable income tax deduction
    • 30% adjusted gross income (AGI) limit
    • 20% AGI limit for private charity or gift of capital gain property
    • 5-year carry-forward
  • Your gift to the trust is taxable gift that is reduced by the amount of the charitable deduction
  • The taxable gift can be offset by applying your lifetime gift tax exemption ($1 million per individual in 2010)

A portion of the Enhanced Charitable Trusts assets

are used to purchase an income-producing asset

to provide an annual payout to charity

  • Generally 10–15% of donated assets goes towards purchase of income-producing asset
  • Municipal bonds make a viable option for annual payment to charity due to their federal income tax-free nature

For maximum leverage, the majority of the trust’s

assets are used to purchase a single premium

life insurance policy

  • Trust is the owner, premium payor and beneficiary of the life insurance policy
  • Upon death of insured, trust pays out final charitable contribution
  • Remainder of death benefit and other trust assets are paid to non-charitable trust beneficiary and trust terminates

Life Insurance—the Perfect Fit

Life insurance inside an Enhanced Charitable Trust

offers multiple advantages

  • Provides a guaranteed amount for charity and family*
  • Gives your family tax-free insurance policy benefits
  • May maximize the charitable deduction
  • Provides charity with final payout that is liquid

* A universal life insurance policy with a secondary guarantee feature will remain in force provided that sufficient premium is paid.
