Charitable Lead Trust

A charitable lead trust is an opportunity for you to make a significant contribution to PDF today.

How does it work?

Under the lead trust, the charity receives income now and the donor, or more typically the donor's heirs, gets the principal back later- usually in 15 to 20 years.

However, it requires a donor who can afford to set aside a significant amount of capital (typically, $1 million or more) for a significant number of years.

What are the benefits?

This option provides a tax benefit in the form of an exemption for all or most of the estate.

This is a wonderful kind of gift for an organization like PDF because it gives us the opportunity to use the income now, when the research is needed, rather than years and years later, when (we hope!) the Parkinson's puzzle will have been solved.
