Gifts of Residual Interest

Gifts of Residual Interest

With a gift of residual interest, you can donate your personal property, continue to use it and receive an immediate tax receipt.  Your gift of residual interest can benefit Victoria University in one of two ways:

The assets placed in trust are typically property such as a principal residence, art work, or book collection. A fair market value for the property is determined at the time of the gift. The donor’s age is taken into account and an appropriate discount rate is used to determine the tax receipt issued. You continue to enjoy the use of your property until the end of the term of the trust.
