Protect Your Assets

You can benefit from the tax savings that result from supporting Merrimack College without giving up the assets that you'd like your family to receive someday with a donation in the form of a charitable lead trust.

There are two ways that charitable lead trusts make payments to Merrimack College:

A charitable lead annuity trust pays a fixed amount each year to Merrimack College and is more attractive when interest rates are low.

A charitable lead unitrust pays a variable amount each year based on the value of the assets in the trust. With a unitrust, if the trust's assets go up in value, for example, the payments to Merrimack College go up as well.
