Charitable Lead Trust

This arrangement provides Purdue with an income from the trust for a term of years or for the lifetime of an individual. At the end of the payment period, the trust property reverts to the donor or, more commonly, passes to family members.

Purdue Research Foundation does not act as trustee on charitable lead trusts.
