Charitable Remainder Trust
This trust is a financial tool which makes payments, either a fixed amount (annuity trust) or a percentage of trust principal (unitrust), to whomever you choose to receive the income. You may claim a charitable income tax deduction and may not have to pay any capital gains tax if the gift is of appreciated property. At the end of the trust term, The JESUS Film Project would receive whatever amount is left in the trust. (Charitable remainder unitrusts provide you some flexibility in the distribution of income, and can be helpful in retirement planning.)
