Date: Wednesday, June 6, 2018
Time: 5:00pm - 7:00pm

This program will cover the manner in which donors and their advisors should approach planned giving under new tax laws as well as changes affecting the charitable deduction and their impact on planned giving techniques.  It will also explore other reasons donors make gifts and whether these considerations are likely to outweigh new tax limitations in a donor’s gift considerations.
