Grantor Lead Trust

Grantor Lead Trust Diagram

How It Works

  1. Create trust agreement stating terms of the trust (usually for a term of years), transfer cash or other property to trustee, and receive an income-tax deduction
  2. Trustee invests and manages trust assets and makes annual payments to The Community House Foundation
  3. Remainder transferred back to you


  • Annual gift to The Community House Foundation
  • Property returned to donor at end of trust term
  • Professional management of assets during term of trust
  • Charitable income-tax deduction, but you are taxed on trust's annual income
