Yes. Cap Gains rates are low. Yet, you're still most probably better off selling some portion of it through a charitable remainder trust. Under most models, the crossover point at which you'd do better by having used a CRT is about 16 years. In addition, the charity you care about will be a long-term beneficiary.

I'd definitely dodge collars, variable forwards, and other chicanery of that sort in order to avoid 15% + local capital gains.
