Charitable giving brings not only the personal satisfaction of knowing you are investing in causes that align with your values and can be a vital part of your estate plan.
There are many ways of gifting during your lifetime that may benefit you and your charity, some of which may be tax deductible. Bequest upon your death can provide a legacy and possibly reduce estate taxes.
Determining the best method of giving is as important as selecting the cause.
