Charitable Remainder Unitrust

Charitable Remainder Unitrust Diagram. Description of image is listed below.

How It Works

  1. Create trust agreement stating terms of the trust; transfer cash or other property to trustee
  2. Trustee invests and manages trust assets and makes payments to income beneficiaries you designate
  3. Remainder to OU for purposes you specify


  • Payments to one or more beneficiaries, varying annually with the value of the trust
  • Federal income-tax deduction for the charitable remainder value of your interest
  • No capital-gain tax when trust is established; property is sold by the trust
  • Trust remainder will provide generous support for OU
