Partnering with Us with a Charitable Lead Trust


Answers in Genesis is dedicated to spreading the message of biblical authority and the gospel of Jesus Christ. In a time when God’s Word is under constant attack, this message that God’s Word can be trusted is needed more than ever. But we can’t do this without you. We rely on faithful partners to keep our ministry going.

There are many ways you can partner with us: volunteering your time, making a one-time donation, or planned giving. One planned giving option is called a charitable lead trust. You fund this trust with cash or stock, and it then pays us for a number of years, with the remainder of the trust value going to your children (or other beneficiary).

This trust allows you to see the results of your gift now, while ensuring your beneficiaries are well cared for in the future. The gift tax charitable deduction associated with this gift can significantly reduce the gift or estate tax on the remaining assets transferred to your beneficiaries at the end of the trust term. Also, a family lead trust allows you to pass on significant assets to family at a reduced (or sometimes zero) gift or estate tax cost.
