Planned Giving

Planned gifts include bequests, trusts, and contracts between you (the donor) and Omni House Foundation, Inc. The potential benefits of planned gifts include an increase in current income for the donor or others, a reduction in the donor’s income tax, the potential to avoid capital gains tax, the ability to pass assets to family at a reduced tax cost and the opportunity to make significant donations. Basic descriptions of the most popular types of planned gifts are as follows. Please consult your financial advisor when considering a planned gift.

Bequest – When a donor decides to leave assets to charity in her will, she is making a bequest. The donor’s estate will receive a charitable estate tax deduction at her death, when the gift is made to charity.

Gift Annuity – A gift annuity is a contract between a charity and a donor. In return for a donation of cash or other assets, the charity agrees to pay a fixed payment for life to the donor or to a friend or family member of the donor’s choosing. The donor also can claim a charitable tax deduction. If a donor funds a gift annuity with long-term capital gain property, the donor will have to report only some of the gain, and may be able to report it in installments over many years. Income from a gift annuity can be deferred for a period of years. Deferred gift annuities are often set up by younger donors to supplement retirement income.

Pooled Income Fund – The name describes this planned gift well– a charity accepts gifts from many donors into a fund and distributes the income of the fund to each donor or recipient of the donor’s choosing. Each income recipient receives income in proportion to his or her share of the fund. For making a gift to a pooled fund, a donor receives a charitable income tax deduction and will not have to pay capital gains tax if the gift is of appreciated property. When an income beneficiary dies, the charity receives the donor’s portion of the fund.

Charitable Remainder Trust – This trust makes payments, either a fixed amount (annuity trust) or a percentage of trust principal (unitrust), to whomever the donor chooses to receive income. The donor may claim a charitable income tax deduction and may not have to pay any capital gains tax if the gift is of appreciated property. At the end of the trust term, the charity receives whatever amount is left in the trust.

Charitable Lead Trust – This trust makes payments, either a fixed amount (annuity trust) or a percentage of trust principal (unitrust), to charity during its term. At the end of the trust term, the principal can either go back to the donor (a grantor lead trust) or to heirs named by the donor (a non-grantor lead trust). The donor may claim a charitable income tax deduction for funding a grantor lead trust or a charitable gift tax deduction for funding a non-grantor lead trust. Since lead trusts are typically used to pass assets to heirs, non-grantor lead trusts are far more common than grantor lead trusts.

Retained Life Estate – A donor may make a gift of his personal residence or farm to charity and retain the right to live there for the remainder of his or her life. The donor receives an immediate income tax deduction for the gift. At the donor’s death, the charity can use or sell the property.
