Retained Life Estates

CLICK HERE FOR A DETAILED EXPLANATION

How it works

You transfer your residence, farm, or vacation home to The Hotchkiss School subject to a life estate.

You continue to live in the property for life or a specified term of years, while continuing to be responsible for all taxes and upkeep.

The property passes to The Hotchkiss School when your life estate ends.

Benefits

  • You receive gift credit and an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of the appraised value of your property.
  • You can terminate your life estate at any time and take an additional income tax deduction.
  • You have the satisfaction of making a significant gift now that benefits The Hotchkiss School later.
