Ways to Give

Establish a charitable remainder trust

A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) is a gift arrangement that allows you to retain an income for yourself, your spouse, and/or others, while making a generous gift to The Foundation for New Hampshire Community Colleges. As a charitable remainder trust donor, you irrevocably transfer assets, usually cash or securities, to a trustee of your choice (for example, a bank trust company).

Advantages of a Charitable Remainder Trust:

  • You can receive income for life or a term of years.
  • If you make your gift with cash or low-yielding securities, you will increase your current income.
  • If you make your gift with appreciated securities, you may avoid capital gains taxes.
  • You will receive an immediate income tax charitable deduction.
  • You may reduce your estate tax.
  • You will have the satisfaction of supporting students or a program important to you.
  • You will be recognized as a member of our legacy society.
