What is Estate and Gift Planning?

Estate and gift planning helps you maximize the personal benefits of your charitable giving, and allows you to make gifts you might have thought impossible. Through advantageous tax treatment under both state and federal law, planned giving is a way to make a gift and also enjoy the benefits of these laws.

The pages on this website are intended to provide general information only, not legal or tax advice about specific situations. Establishing a planned gift within your financial circumstances and estate planning requires careful thought and consideration upon consultation with your own attorney, accountant, or financial advisor. Our staff is available to work with you and your advisor(s) in confidence and with no obligation to help you explore the best possible method of planned giving based on your circumstances.
