You can benefit from the tax savings that result from supporting an affiliate of the UVM Health Network without giving up the assets that you'd like your family to receive someday with a donation in the form of a charitable lead trust.
There are two ways that charitable lead trusts make payments to an affiliate of the UVM Health Network:
A charitable lead annuity trust pays a fixed amount each year to an affiliate of the UVM Health Network 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 an affiliate of the UVM Health Network go up as well.
