§110. Others treated as qualified beneficiaries

1. Charitable organization or person to enforce trust.  A charitable organization expressly designated to receive distributions under the terms of a charitable trust has the rights of a qualified beneficiary under this Code if the charitable organization, on the date the charitable organization's qualification is being determined:
A. Is a distributee or permissible distributee of trust income or principal; [2005, c. 184, §7 (NEW).]
B. Would be a distributee or a permissible distributee of trust income or principal upon the termination of the interests of other distributees or permissible distributees then receiving or eligible to receive distributions; or [2005, c. 184, §7 (NEW).]
C. Would be a distributee or permissible distributee of trust income or principal if the trust terminated on that date. [2017, c. 39, §1 (AMD).]
A charitable organization whose interest in the trust as a contingent distributee of the trust income or principal is not reasonably expected to vest does not have the rights of a qualified beneficiary.
