Remainder Annuity Trusts

How it works
  1. You transfer cash, securities or other appreciated property into a trust.
  2. The trust makes fixed annual payments to you or to beneficiaries you name.
  3. When the trust terminates, the remainder passes to The Nature Conservancy.

  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your contribution to the annuity trust.
  • You pay no upfront capital gains tax on any appreciated assets you donate.
  • You or your designated income beneficiaries receive stable, predictable income for life or a term of years.
  • You have the satisfaction of making a significant gift that benefits you now and The Nature Conservancy later.
