Charitable Trusts – Reduce gift and estate taxes, and freeze the taxable value of growing assets before they pass to your family.  
Charitable trusts are particularly beneficial for those who hold highly appreciated, low-yield investments from which a higher return is desired.  No capital gains tax is paid on gifted securities and a tax deduction is allowed depending on the donor's age, payment percentage, and other factors.
