Trust funds allow a grantor to establish specifically designated funds that provide financial security to an individual, most often a child or grandchild, or organization, like a charity or other nonprofit. Trust funds can help you establish financial security for your children, minimize death taxes and in the process preserve your children’s own capital.

Provide clarity for your family and help them avoid unnecessary legal challenges.
