An Overview of Private Trust

A private trust is a trust where the beneficiary (the person or entity which receives the equitable title in the property) is private and non-charitable. Thus, this is opposed to a charitable trust, which has charitable beneficiaries. The distinction between private trusts and charitable trusts, while obvious, is necessary because there are certain requirements and conditions which apply to one but not the other. Private Trusteeship are set up for the maintenance, education and benefit of children and grandchildren. The main aim is to provide for the day-to-day needs of the beneficiaries and for the payment of their educational costs.
