Charitable Gift Planning Attorney Stamford CT
Law Offices of Richard A. Sarner, Esq ● Stamford, Connecticut ● New York City ● Charitable Gift Planning Attorney
Charitable giving offers an individual the opportunity to direct how his or her “social capital”—that portion of one’s estate that would be otherwise distributed through our tax system—can be directed. Without a charitable giving component to an estate plan, the government will determine how the social capital is distributed. By working carefully with our clients, the Law Offices of Richard A. Sarner, Esq can meet a number of their needs, including making sure that a beloved charity receives much-needed funds, involving their beneficiaries in that charity, and creating an income stream for their beneficiaries through a charitable remainder trust (CRT).
Charitable gift planning can include creating family foundations, donating directly to the charity, or using a charitable trust. We also work with nonprofit organizations, schools and foundations, putting in place charitable legacies by designing Planned Giving solutions, which benefit the family and the charity to the fullest extent.
