Donating Through a Charitable Remainder Trust
We first wanted to donate to charity. We had property that we no longer needed. We gifted this property to a Charitable Remainder Unitrust. The property was sold and the value invested. We received a substantial tax deduction and each year we receive income in quarterly payments.
We named the Dubuque Franciscans and two other charities to receive the balance of the trust after our deaths. Jo was educated by the Sisters and had an aunt in the congregation.
We have long believed that "From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required."
-Johanna (Redmond) and Bob Deuker
