Planned Gift (Bequest, Trust, etc.)
Planned giving, also called deferred gifts, can be set up in a variety of ways, depending upon the donor’s desires. Specific questions may be directed to:

Bequest: Bequests are the transfers of wealth that occur upon a donor’s death and that include transfers by means of a will or a trust.
Charitable Gift Annuity: A charitable gift annuity is a way to make a gift to GRU, and still receive an income for yourself or others. It is a contract under which GRU, in return for a transfer of cash or other property, agrees to pay a fixed sum of money for a period measured by one or two lives.
Charitable Remainder Trust: A charitable remainder trust (CRT) is established when you transfer assets (cash or appreciated assets) to the trustee named in the trust agreement (e.g., a bank trust department). Your trustee invests the assets for the term of the trust, which can be for the life of the income beneficiary (or beneficiaries) or for a term of no more than twenty years. When the trust ends, the remaining assets are distributed under the guidelines that you previously set for your gift.
