Estate planning and charitable giving go together like peaches and summer. We encourage all of our clients to incorporate charitable giving into their estate plans and lifetime giving plans. You have a unique chance to help a cause you believe in and create a legacy that will last, frankly, a lot longer than you will. Whether it’s your church, your college, Greenhill Humane Society in Eugene or Oregon Public Broadcasting—these organizations thrive on your support.
It’s humbling to see the causes our clients care about, and there are so many ways to give. You can give you estate directly to a charity, make a charity a contingent beneficiary, contribute to a donor advised fund, or allow your beneficiaries the chance to donate to their favorite charities.
And if you want to know what’s in it for you, we can help with that, too. All clients who contribute 20% of their estates directly to a 501(c)(3) charitable organization get 20% off the flat fee.
