Charitable Planning Strategies with Business Interests and Other Non-Cash Assets

Non-cash 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-cash assets are used to fund charitable gifts.

Attendees will learn:
• 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.
• The difference between using a Private Foundation and Donor-Advised Fund for (family or corporate) grantmaking and philanthropy.
• 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 live webinar presentation includes Case Study Application and Q&A.

CLE, CPE and CFP Credit available.
