Can someone point to an instrument that could be purchased at the time of my death which would make annual payments over a period of ten years to an organization? The organization is a 501(c3) non-profit. Basically we want to spread a portion of our estate over a period of years - not in a single lump sum.

What has your estate planning attorney suggested? It seems to me that with all the bright minds in the financial sector they could dream up something. I mean, look at credit default swaps.

I would suspect there's some sort of annuity your executor could buy which would pay out over a specified number of years. My question would be whether the price of that would be more than the cost of administering a trust.
