Deciding how to divide your assets among family, friends, and charity at the end of life is a matter of the heart.
Deciding how to divide your assets among family, friends and charity at the end of life is a matter of the heart. A will or trust is a personal expression of giving and there are many ways that your legacy wishes can be arranged. A planned gift requires careful thought with your family and other professional advisors. These kinds of gifts can potentially offer substantial tax advantages in the areas of income, estate and capital gains taxes. In some cases, planned gifts may provide additional income for you and your named beneficiaries.
Our staff is available to work with you and your advisors in confidence and without obligation to help you explore the best method of giving to suit your unique individual circumstances.
