Combine philanthropy, personal financial security, and tax benefits by establishing a donor advised fund, charitable remainder, or charitable lead trust through Wealth Management & Trust of Stock Yards Bank & Trust Company. Working closely with you, your attorney, and your financial advisor, our wealth advisors will help you implement your charitable goals in a manner that best suits your estate plan’s giving strategy.

Donor Advised Fund

If giving is one of the family values that you want to pass along; we can help.  With a gift of cash, appreciated stock, or other assets, you can establish a Donor Advised Fund in your family’s name.  Then you and your family can provide financial assistance to the causes you care about the most.

Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) & Charitable Lead Trust (CLT)

Utilizing a CRT or a CLT can allow you to:

  • Support the causes you care about
  • Defer or eliminate capital gains taxes
  • Reduce income taxes and estate taxes
  • Provide income for you or your beneficiaries
  • Pass your assets on to beneficiaries with reduced estate taxes
  • Retain assets with growth potential for future beneficiaries while making a capital campaign gift or providing current support to a specified charity

Pure Charitable Trust

A pure charitable trust can allow you to provide a perpetual source of income to meet the needs of those charities that you care most about.
