"I did not find the world desolate when I entered it.
And as my parents planted for me before I was born, so do I plant for those who will come after me." -Talmud
A charitable lead trust minimizes estate taxes on assets you intend to leave to your children or grandchildren, particularly when those assets are expected to appreciate.
After transferring your assets, the charitable lead trust provides fixed amount payments to Jewish Community Foundation for a specific term of years or for your lifetime. Thereafter, the trust's principal passes on to your heirs or beneficiaries.
Additional appreciation of assets is not subject to estate taxes for the term of the trust.
Reduces taxes that would otherwise be due on assets left to children and grandchildren.
