What Is Charitable Giving?

Charitable giving is the act of donating resources to causes and organizations that you are passionate about. It’s a way to contribute to the greater good and leave a lasting mark on the world. When incorporated into your estate plan, it becomes a powerful tool for creating a legacy that aligns with your philanthropic goals.

How Do You Plan For Charitable Giving?

Planning for charitable giving involves thoughtful consideration of how you want to support the causes close to your heart:

  • Identifying the organizations or causes you wish to support.
  • Deciding on the form and timing of your gifts.
  • Understanding the tax benefits and implications.
  • Integrating your charitable goals with your overall estate plan.

What Is A Charitable Remainder Trust?

A charitable remainder trust is a planned giving tool that allows you to receive income for the rest of your life or a specified term, after which the remainder of the trust is donated to your chosen charity. It’s a win-win, providing you with financial benefits while also supporting your philanthropic interests.

How Do I Give An Inheritance To Charity?

Giving an inheritance to charity can be done in several ways:

  • Bequests in a will or trust.
  • Designating a charity as a beneficiary of retirement accounts or life insurance policies.
  • Establishing a charitable trust or donor advised fund.
