Charitable Lead Trust

Create a trust that pays a fixed or variable income to the Shakespeare Theatre Company for a set period of time, after which the assets then pass to your beneficiaries.  The longer the term of the trust and the greater the amount of the payments to the Theatre, the larger your charitable deduction.  A charitable lead trust can allow you to significantly reduce or even eliminate the gift and estate taxes on the value of the assets used to fund the trust.
