Learning Objectives:

  • Identify why charitable planning should be part of – or at least discussed in – every client’s planning.
  • Recognize the lifetime outright charitable gift techniques and the tax implications of each, including gifts of appreciated securities, real estate, life insurance policies and qualified charitable IRA rollovers.
  • Explain testamentary charitable gifts including bequests, life estate deed and life insurance and retirement account beneficiary designations.
  • Discuss charitable remainder and lead trusts and the appropriate circumstances for their use.
