  Charitable remainder trust (CRT)
A CRT allows you to transfer appreciated assets into the trust, avoid taxes on the sale of the assets, and receive an immediate income tax deduction. The asset is then liquidated and can be reinvested to produce income that goes to you or others designated by you for a specified period of time. At the end of the trust period, the remainder balance goes to your favorite charities. Your Giving Fund can be named as the trust's charitable beneficiary – thus, giving you the flexibility of changing charitable recipients as often as you need to.
 

  Charitable lead trust (CLT)
A CLT allows you to transfer assets into the trust, pay income to charity for a fixed number of years, and then (upon your death or at then end of the trust period) pay the remaining balance in the trust to your family or another (non-charitable) beneficiary. Like the CRT, your Giving Fund can be named as the trust's charitable beneficiary – thus, giving you the flexibility of changing charitable recipients as often as you need to.
