Strategic Charitable Gift Planning

We provide all assistance in planning for the implementation of your charitable gifts.  Clearly, charitable gifts can generate significant income, gift and estate tax savings and we assist you in planning these gifts in such a manner as to maximize those tax benefits without distorting your dispositive objectives. Planning in this arena involves the drafting of charitable lead trusts and charitable remainder trusts and bequests and trusts in your Will. We work closely with the charitable entity and accountant as necessary to accomplish your goals. In fact, our Maryland book just added an entire chapter devoted to charitable lead trusts and charitable remainder trusts, both of which remain effective tools even in the face of changes in the tax law.
