Do you want to benefit from the tax savings that result from supporting DU, 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 DU 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 DU go up as well.
