Charitable Trust

Extending a helping hand is the best way to help!

This statement stands true when you are wishing to donate for a Charitable Trust. Not only that you get the blessings from these needy people but also you will get a lifetime income and also the Dhana Yoga Foundation will also benefit in the long run! Indeed a win-win situation for everyone.


Where there is a will there is a way! Now that you have decided to donate there are a lot of ways by which you can do so such as:

  1. Donate an asset: as real estate,

  2. Appreciated stock

  3. Cash to DYF


Dhana Yoga Foundation will then be able to sell these assets without paying capital gains tax and invest the profits— in paying a monthly income to you for lifetime, and if you wish, even to your heirs for lifetime or for a certain period of years. After the death of all income beneficiaries, your trust will eventually help these destitute and needy people to transform lives in a positive manner.


Your generous efforts help YOU as well:


  1. Since Dhana Yoga Foundation can put up your donated assets for sale, without paying capital gains tax, this becomes advantageous to those big hearted donors who want to sell/donate highly appreciated assets. As sometimes many a dollars which would have gone to capital gains taxes remains in the trust, generating income donors like you in return.

  2. You can obtain income tax deduction for the value of the donation you have made to DYF.

  3. Another benefit is that the trust principal is not subject to estate tax and you will be benefited from this.


HOW you can donate for a charitable trust?
When you have the desire to serve humanity and then at the same time you are looking for a reliable and consistent income flow for lifetime, and want to sidestep capital gains tax on stock or real estate, reduction on estate tax then this is the best solution for you.


  1. Fund DYF with Cash or Stock
    Gifts of appreciated stock are perfect for funding charitable trusts because the stock can be re-invested and used by the trust for better lifetime income for you, and the trust will also be able to sidestep capital gains taxes at the time of the stock sale.


  1. Donation of Real Estate Asset
    Appreciated real estate donation is also an excellent way of asset donation, to a charitable trust like DYF. Mature asset properties regularly earn only 2-4% of their fair market value per year. When these assets are sold and the earnings are reinvested by the trust, earnings often increase appreciably.


    1. You being the owner normally have to pay considerable capital gains taxes when you sell rental properties or commercial real estate. On the other side, the charitable trust like DYF is a tax-exempt entity, when DYF sells the property, there would be no capital gains taxes levied on it. Therefore all the earnings of sale can be reinvested to produce more income for you over the period of time.


  1. Giving Your Home and Keeping It, Too
    A charitable life tenancy agreement allows you to give a personal residence or farm to Dhana Yoga Foundation while keeping the right to live there for lifetime. You will receive an immediate income tax deduction, and is able to avoid probate and estate tax on the property, along with, getting the mental satisfaction of making an extensive gift to DYF during your lifetime.


  1. Giving Part of Your Property

There are people in the world who find it practical to give an exclusive percentage interest of their possessions into a charitable trust, rather than contribution in full. When the property is sold then the trust gets that much percent of the proceedings which it can use for the benefit of the needy. Indeed an appreciable way of donating!
