About the Program
Recent legislation, historically low interest rates, demographics, and an economic environment profoundly affected by the COVID pandemic has made three charitable gifting strategies particularly opportune today. This session will explore the impact COVID has had on charitable institutions, and discuss and analyze why charitable lead trusts, charitable remainder trusts as an IRA beneficiary, and S Corp shares donated to a donor advised fund are uniquely timely and powerful for our philanthropic clients.
