Smart Tax-Saving Strategies Using Philanthropy –
Be a Champion To Your Clients and Constituents!
Tax season is right around the corner, so now is the ideal time to talk to your clients about their taxes and charitable giving strategy, especially in light of tax reform. While many deductions were reduced or eliminated under the new tax law, charitable donations were not. With the threshold now set higher, strategic charitable planning is more important than ever.
Schwab Charitable’s Senior Relationship Manager, Mary Jovanovich, will illustrate strategies that will not only help on the tax side, but also open up important conversations with clients that can deepen your relationship, expand your practice, and make you a champion!
This webcast is relevant to advisors, attorneys, CPAs and our nonprofit community and illustrate the importance of collaboration to make a bigger impact for clients and communities. CE credit will be available.
Major takeaways include:
- Learn tax-smart strategies revolving around concentrating contributions, donating non-cash assets, and identifying the most suitable charitable vehicle for maximum impact.
- Identify opportunities that align with your clients’ and donors’ values to make giving more meaningful and rewarding.
- Make the most of donor-advised funds and other giving vehicles in light of the current tax environment.
- Strengthen your relationship with clients and donors, while connecting you to the next generation along the way.
