Charitable Remainder Unitrusts

How does a Charitable Remainder Unitrust work?

Step 1: Transfer cash, securities or other appreciated property into a trust.

Step 2: The trust pays a percentage of the market value of the assets revalued annually to you or to your beneficiaries.

Step 3: When the trust ends, the principal passes to Safe Horizon.
