How charitable lead trusts can direct your wealth to your beneficiaries - Estate Planning

A Charitable Lead Trust (CLT) is the opposite of the Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) in that its income is paid to a charitable beneficiary for a term of years. At the expiration of the term, if the return on trust assets exceeds the Section 7520 rate ( which is currently very low), any assets remaining in the trust pass to non-charitable “remainder-men” like a grantor’s children (or to trusts for their benefit). As an example, Mike demonstrates how you can direct your own “Social Capital” by having your children carry-on your charitable intent with funds that would have gone to the IRS. This is an excellent episode using donor advised funds and/or family foundations.

Syndicated financial columnist and talk show host Steve Savant interviews author, speaker and frequent media guest Mike Kilbourn, CLU, ChFC, CCIM, AEP, MSFS. This is episode 5 of 5 in the series, Estate Planning Update for 2015. Mike's book Disinherit the IRS is a staple in estate planning circles and is in it's second edition. Mike is also the founder and chairman of the Wealth Protection Network®, a national network of estate planning professionals that work in concert create and manage comprehensive estate plans.
