Charitable Remainder Trusts

A charitable remainder trust pays income to a private beneficiary during the term of the trust, with the remainder passing to a charitable entity. Remainder trusts can be set up by will or during the donor’s lifetime. SGCF will accept designation as a remainder beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust but will not accept appointment as trustee of a charitable remainder trust unless such arrangement is approved by the Gift Acceptance Committee. SGCF shall not prepare charitable trust documents. Please see how the Montana Tax Credit could work for this gifting option.

This grant helped us bring ‘Every Brilliant Thing’ to our high school. Students were able to role play and have a discussion about suicide, depression, and resilience. The goal, to diminish the shame associated with suicide and mental illness and bring awareness of depression and suicide to students and staff with SGHS.
