Tip of the Week

Variety is the spice of giving.

You can give almost any kind of highly appreciated property—such as closely-held stock, real estate, partnership interests, or valuable art—to a charitable remainder trust and receive major tax and income benefits.

So, all at once, you can:

  • Receive income for life
  • Take a charitable tax deduction
  • Avoid all capital gains tax
  • Support the mission of American Rivers

You can even allow your assets to accumulate tax-free until you "turn on the income spigot" at retirement or some other future event, such as the start of your child's education.
