Ways to Make a Visionary Gift

Charitable Remainder Trusts

By transferring assets to the TSJC Educational Foundation to establish a trust, you or a beneficiary will receive a lifetime income. Eventually, the remaining assets of the trust pass on to the Foundation. This gift works well if you need income now. This option is appropriate for gifts of $50,000 or more.

Charitable Lead Trusts

You may transfer assets to a trust for a fixed number of years. The interest earned will go to the TSJC Foundation, and later the principal will go back to you or your beneficiaries. This gift works well if you do not need current income and want the asset to go to a beneficiary. You may claim a tax deduction for making a lead trust gift.

Retained Life Estate

If you deed property (a house, summer home, farm home, etc.) to the TSJC Educational Foundation, you and/or your spouse retain the right to live in the house for the remainder of your lives. You also receive an immediate income tax deduction for the gift. Each retained life estate gift will be individually negotiated and approved by the Foundation’s Board of Directors. The final decision to keep or sell the property rests with the Foundation.

The Foundation's mission is to support the growth and development of Trinidad State Junior College.
