True Stories: Charitable Gift Planning from the Pilgrims to Tomorrow’s Gifts

No one has heard the story of gift planning quite this way. See planned gifts by a Mayflower Pilgrim and President George Washington; how John Trumbull's paintings of the War for American Independence were saved through a gift annuity issued by Yale; why best practices from the 1920s remain core values of gift planning; why the Tax Reform Act of 1969 led to a national association of charitable gift planners; and how rapidly-changing demographics of wealth and age will shape American gift planning for decades to come. Participants will understand the foundational gifts, best practices, legislation, and court decisions that shape gift planning today; unlock a treasure chest of useful, illuminating, and entertaining donor stories; and gain a powerful perspective on the roots of current events in gift planning.

Protecting Bequeathed Donations with a Solid Estate Plan

It happens all the time. You have a donor who has made it known that your charity will be remembered in his or her Will. But as the individual ages and mental acuity declines, loved ones of the donor step in and change those plans. What can be done to minimize this? It’s a delicate dance, but there are things you can suggest your donors do early-on to help ensure their wishes are met. Join attorney Ruth Fortune from the elder law firm Czepiga Daly Pope and Perri for a session where she’ll explain what needs to be done. You’ll learn about proper estate plan language, planning tools, and roles of fiduciaries. She’ll also discuss ways your donors can protect their estates (and ultimately your donations!) from Connecticut’s notoriously high long-term care costs.
