The Magic of Charitable Giving
The most effective approach to charitable planning is to incorporate philanthropy into the client/donor's overall estate plan. Unfortunately, charitable gifts, especially larger gifts, are often the result of favorable tax benefits rather than pure philanthropy. It is important to communicate the tax consequences of charitable alternatives in simple terms and to understand which strategies work best in the current low-interest-rate environment. This presentation will evaluate charitable life estates, charitable annuities, charitable remainder trusts and charitable lead trusts as efficient methods of transferring wealth.
