Provide for Loved Ones and AU
Charitable Lead Trusts
View Our Complimentary BrochureDiscover which type of charitable trust best fits your estate plan with our complimentary guide Trusts: Choose from Two Win-Win Ways to Donate.
Do you want to enjoy the tax savings that come with supporting American University, but don't want to part with assets that you would like to leave to loved ones some day? 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 American University a fixed amount each year. This option is more attractive when interest rates are low.
A CHARITABLE LEAD UNITRUST pays American University a variable amount each year based on the value of the assets in the trust. If the trust's assets appreciate in value then the payments to AU will increase as well.
