Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust
(A Stable Dose of Fixed Income)

How it works

You transfer cash, securities or other appreciated property into a trust.

The trust makes fixed annual payments to you or to anyone you name.

When the trust ends, the principal passes to the Red Cross.


  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your contribution to the trust.

  • As long as you are one of the beneficiaries, you pay no immediate capital gains tax on any appreciated assets you donate. A portion of the capital gains tax is spread over your life expectancy.

  • You or your designated income beneficiaries receive stable, predictable payments for life or a term of years.

  • You can have the satisfaction of making a significant gift that benefits you now and the Red Cross later.
