Charitable Remainder Unitrusts
(Gift illustration)

How it works

You transfer cash, securities or other appreciated property into a trust.

The trust pays a percentage of the value of its principal, which is re-valued annually, to you or to beneficiaries you name.

When the trust terminates, the remainder passes to the American Cancer Society.

Benefits

  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your contribution to the unitrust.
  • You pay no upfront capital gains tax on appreciated assets you donate.
  • You or your designated beneficiaries receive income for life or a term of years.
  • You can make additional gifts to the trust as your circumstances allow and qualify for additional tax deductions.
  • You have the satisfaction of making a significant gift that benefits you now and the American Cancer Society later.
