Many of our clients integrate significant charitable giving into their estate plans. Both during life and at death, we counsel clients in structuring their charitable gifts in a way that achieves their personal goals in a tax efficient manner. When charitable giving is a component of an estate plan, our planning often results in more assets being available to charity with an enhanced tax benefit to our clients. Our work includes drafting charitable trusts, establishing private foundations, preparing restricted gift agreements and planning for art or other collections that ultimately will be distributed to charity. Benesch attorneys also provide guidance on the formation, governance and tax issues associated with public and large private foundations. Benesch is highly-ranked in this area; you can read more about our not-for-profit law practice here.
