Charitable Options for Gifts of Business Interests

Program Description:
For business owners, their largest asset is generally their business. During business operation years, there may not be much liquidity to make charitable gifts, but the sale of the business can provide liquidity and an opportunity for significant charitable gifts. It is helpful when professional advisors, development personnel and fundraisers working with business owners are familiar with the various charitable options and can help guide the donor through what may be a complex process of gifting a business interest. In this session, Ms. Buckley will discuss which charitable strategies work best depending on the clients' goals and the type of business entities held. During this time we will discuss outright gifts and split interest gifts of various business entity types including C corp, S corp, LLC and partnership interests.
