How It Works

  1. Create trust agreement stating terms of the trust (usually for a term of years) and transfer cash or other property to the University of Illinois Foundation
  2. The University of Illinois Foundation invests and manages trust assets and makes annual payments to benefit the UIC purposes you specify
  3. Remainder transferred to your heirs


  • Annual gift to the University of Illinois Foundation to benefit UIC for the purposes you specified when you created the trust
  • Future gift to heirs at fraction of property's value for transfer-tax purposes
  • Professional management of assets during term of trust
  • No charitable income-tax deduction, but you're not taxed on annual income of the trust
