A No Beneficiary Trust

Trust3An often forgotten trust, is the non-charitable purpose (NCP) trust. These trusts do not have human beneficiaries. Examples of NCP trusts include pet trusts and honorary trusts. NCP trusts can be used to provide maintenance and care for various types of property such as family heirlooms and antiques, art collections, royalties, and digital assets.
