NAEPC Webinar: Philanthropic Times, They are a Changing

Date: Wednesday, August 8, 2018
Time: 3:00pm - 4:00pm ET
Location: Webinar
Speaker: Betsy Brill, MBA; Laura Malone, CAPĀ®, CEPA; Jennifer Klein Strauss, JD

For the first time, charitable giving has topped $400 Billion dollars and most of that is coming from individuals like your clients.   However, philanthropy is changing – and not just because of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA).  Women and next generation wealth-holders are the new decision-makers when it comes to substantial charitable giving. The use of various charitable giving vehicles is an ever-evolving dynamic that is no longer “one size fits all”.  Finally, those that give are beginning to seek more innovative ways to create impact and return on their philanthropic investment through various forms of impact/program related investments.

How do you tee up the conversation and effectively engage clients on this important topic?  Do you have the right collaborative team in place to assist you?

Please join Betsy Brill, Laura Malone and Jennifer Klein Strauss as they cover key charitable points from TCJA,  an overview of which philanthropic tools will best help you serve client needs and explain how to build a team that addresses due diligence, estate planning, tax and other considerations.
