We assist our clients in creating charitable components to their estate or business succession plans that help them meet their goals while taking advantage of available tax benefits.
Charitable planning is a major element of our estate planning services, and we have significant experience in establishing all types of charitable planning vehicles.
We advise clients on:
- Life estates
- Charitable remainder interests
- Charitable Remainder Trusts (CRTs)
- Charitable Lead Trusts (CLTs)
- Gift annuities
- Family foundations
- Donor-advised funds through community foundations or other charities
Our attorneys have served as directors or trustees of foundations, community foundations and other public charities. This provides us with significant experience in understanding charitable planning from both the organization’s point of view and the client’s perspective.
