Charitable Remainder Unitrusts

CRUT Diagram

How It Works

  • You transfer cash, securities, or other appreciated property into a trust.
  • The trust pays a percentage of the value of its principal, which is valued annually, to you or the beneficiary(ies) you name.
  • When the trust terminates, the remainder passes to Planned Parenthood to be used as you have directed.


  • Receive payments for life or a term of years in return for your gift. 
  • Receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your contribution.
  • Pay no upfront capital gains tax on appreciated assets you donate.
  • You can make additional gifts to the trust as your circumstances allow for additional income and tax benefits.
