Charitable planning involves broad themes such as making philanthropy a part of a client's overall estate plan, philanthropic planning for future family generations, the sale or disposition of appreciated assets, and a client's income requirements.

Appreciated capital assets may represent a large part of a client's net worth. This may include a closely held family business, a family farm or other real estate, or marketable securities. If so, the client may be in a position to reap the benefit of some of that appreciation, eliminate the capital gains tax and serve philanthropic goals as well.

  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Charitable lead trusts
