In the 1950’s, Grandmother Johnson gave Julia stocks.  Over the decades this gift increased significantly in value.  Knowing she would lose a large portion of her grandmother’s gift to capital gains taxes if she sold them, she was advised to create a charitable remainder trust.  The trust sold the stocks tax-free and Julie received an immediate income tax deduction.   She also receives an income stream from the trust throughout her lifetime.
In 2012, Julie established the Julie Johnson Iavelli Charitable Remainder Trust of which Francis Parker School is the sole remainder beneficiary.  When asked why she's chosen to leave a legacy to Parker in such a meaningful way she shared, “This just seemed like the right thing to do. Since my grandmother was inspired to start Parker, it just fit to give it back to Parker."
