    How It Works

    • You transfer cash, securities, or other appreciated property into a trust. The required minimum for this type of gift is $100,000.
    • The trust pays a percentage of the value of its principal, which is valued annually, to you or beneficiaries you name.
    • When the trust terminates, the remainder passes to Saint Thomas More Chapel at Yale to be used as you have directed.


    • Receive income for life or a term of years in return for your gift. 
    • Receive an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of your contribution.
    • Pay no up front capital gains tax on appreciated assets you give.
    • You can make additional gifts to the trust as your circumstances allow for additional income and tax benefits.
