A person who donates their property to another, in the form of a trust. He or she voluntarily transfers property or money to the donee, with little or no exchange of value on the recipient’s part. 

After a donor willingly and unconditionally transfers ownership of a property to the donee, it’s impossible for them to take it back.  The IRS can permit deduction of taxes from certain donated properties.
