Give more than you ever thought possible

Many people like to include a charitable gift in their wills or trusts. When you combine your overall financial and estate planning with such planned gifts, you can minimize your tax burden, provide for your family, honor loved ones, preserve your family name, and reinforce your personal values. Furthermore, you can make significant charitable contributions to your favorite causes — gifts that may not be possible in your current financial position.

  • Charitable Remainder Trust
