CE Class: Charitable Planning Strategies with Business Interests

Jeanne McMains, J.D. Vice President of Gift Planning, National Christian Foundation

Non-liquid assets, including private closely-held businesses, are often overlooked as a source of charitable giving.
This seminar will examine the technical considerations, the tax and legal aspects, as well as the opportunities that arise when business interests and other non-liquid assets are used to fund charitable gifts.

Topics include:

  • How to capture multiple tax savings when gifting business interests to charity including S-Corps, C-Corps, LLCs and partnerships.
  • Strategies for maximizing charitable giving as part of a larger business succession plan, while minimizing transaction challenges such as UBTI, excess business holdings, and controlling vs. non-controlling interests.
  • How gifting income-generating assets or business interests can be used to fund charitable endeavors optimizing charitable goals, business goals, and transition planning even long before a sale is contemplated.

The presentation includes Case Study Application and Q&A. 
CLE and CFP Credit is available.
Space is limited and advance RSVP is required.
