Value or property given by an individual to a trustee who holds and administers it for the benefit of the donee (recipient of the gift). For example, a father entrusts a life insurance policy with all ownership rights to a trustee. The trustee owns the policy, collects the proceeds, and administers the proceeds for the benefit of the donee son.
