ABOUT THE PROGRAM: Charitable Giving
This presentation highlights the many ways families can transfer wealth to charity and family, but importantly how these strategies will succeed in these turbulent financial times. More specifically, the Wealth Transfer Ideas Book outlines:

  1. Today’s planning challenges and opportunities due to increasing interest rates, higher inflation, and lower returns;
  2. The considerations and impacts of certain planning strategies (including, gifts to DAFs, CRUTs, CLATs as well as lifetime gifts, installment sales, rolling GRATs, and Roth conversions,); and
  3. How we can help clients better understand the mechanics of and tax savings from these strategies. 

A few learning objectives are:

  1. Gain an understanding of which charitable and wealth transfer strategies are effective in a rising interest rate environment
  2. Identify which assets are the best assets to give to charity from a tax perspective
  3. How to integrate charitable intent with a sale of a privately held business.
