Speaker: Sandy VandenBerge
Topic: Charitable Giving
Planned gifts are a great tool for your clients to not only leave a legacy with charitable giving, but also enjoy tax benefits. This focus group will include a review of planned giving options with special attention to charitable remainder trusts (CRT). A CRT is the perfect tool to use to avoid capital gains tax on highly appreciated real estate or stock, and it provides income to the donor for life. Talking to your clients about including charitable giving in their financial and estate planning will also be discussed.
