What do you know about Planned Giving? Would you like to know more?

How professional advisors benefit clients and promote their professional services by asking themselves and their clients the Golden Question of charitable giving.

Do you consistently ask your clients about their philanthropic interests as part of their estate and tax planning? Are you comfortable in discussing ways your clients can leave a philanthropic legacy?

We’ll examine current planned giving trends and review planned giving tools that estate planners should be aware of and, when appropriate, be prepared to share with their clients. We will also consider the best techniques for initiating a philanthropic conversation thereby ensuring that your clients enjoy every opportunity to evaluate ways they can benefit their favorite charities.
