To comply with federal law applicable to pooled income funds, the Legacy Income Trusts will not accept contributions of federally tax-exempt securities or shares of funds holding federally tax-exempt securities. The Legacy Income Trusts will also not accept contributions of securities that have been held by the Donor for one year or less. Subject to the approval of Eaton Vance Trust Company (Trustee), the Legacy Income Trusts may accept certain privately held or restricted stock. All transferred property must be free and clear of any liens, encumbrances or other adverse claims. Depending on the Donor’s relationship to his or her designated income beneficiaries, a contribution to a Legacy Income Trust may have federal gift or estate tax consequences for the Donor; naming certain individuals as income beneficiaries may also have federal generation-skipping transfer tax implications for the Donor or income beneficiaries. See “Tax Considerations” in the Legacy Income Trusts’ current Information Statement (Information Statement).

All grants are subject to the determination of the Gift Trust that the grant recipient is a qualified charitable organization and that the grant otherwise meets all applicable legal requirements.

Grants to qualified charitable organizations are made through the donor-advised fund sub-account of the Gift Trust (Charitable Account) into which a Donor's Legacy Income Trust account converts.
