Advanced Charitable Planning Tools

Donor-advised funds, private foundations, and supporting organizations are all charitable grant-making vehicles. This seminar will examine the technical considerations, tax and legal aspects, and giving opportunities that are unique to each one and how they are used to fund charitable gifts.

Attendees will learn:

  • Key differences between using a private foundation and a donor-advised fund for (family or corporate) grant-making and philanthropy.
  • How to navigate tax deductibility, family involvement, non-cash gifts, and charitable investments efficiently and effectively by utilizing the right charitable vehicle.
  • How to capture multiple tax savings when making non-cash gifts to donor-advised funds and supporting organizations.
  • How to minimize income tax, capital gains tax, and estate/gift tax in consideration of financial and charitable goals.
