Is Charity Included in Your Estate Plan?


As part of your estate planning, you might want to consider making a gift to one or more of your favorite charities in your Will or Trust.  This is what is known as “Planned Giving”.

Depending on the type of gift you choose, you may potentially reap benefits from your philanthropy that have very practical and desirable outcomes, such as the following:

  • Ability to leave a legacy
  • Income tax benefits
  • A life income for you or your spouse
  • Reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes
  • Personal Satisfaction

Whatever your objective, an estate planning attorney can help you choose the right tool to provide the most benefits for you, your family, and your charity.
