Charitable Remainder Unitrust

Charitable Remainder Unitrust

A charitable remainder unitrust ("unitrust") is a gift plan defined by federal tax law that allows a donor to provide income to herself and/or others while making a generous gift to charity. The income may continue for the lifetimes of the beneficiaries, a fixed term of not more than 20 years, or a combination of the two.

Build-up Gift

A build-up gift is any gift that is made in installments over a period of years.  For example, a donor might fund a deferred gift annuity each year for five years or make a series of additions to a charitable remainder unitrust.

FASB Liabilities and FASB 157 Fair Value Measurements - Mountains and Molehills

For gift planning offices at most not-for-profit organizations (NFPs), FASB accounting is the last thing on the list. Activities are geared towards bringing in new planned gifts, ongoing administration, and donor stewardship. The financial office asks for a FASB liability report once a year (at a few NFPs, once a quarter). Someone in the gift planning office runs off a new report using similar assumptions to the previous year. If there is an outside gift administrator, they can be asked to produce the report.
