  • Beyond Charitable Rollovers – Leveraging Large IRAs Into Large Charitable Gifts

Speaker: Robert Lew

The potential of harvesting a large charitable gift from IRAs is incredible considering the amount of money these and similar accounts hold - over $4.9 trillion dollars. This presentation will focus on generating large inter vivos and testamentary IRA gifts. Case studies will illustrate how a $3M IRA can be used to; 1) fund a capital campaign, 2) provide income to a family member while generating a gift to charity or, 3) leveraged into a $8M endowment. The potential of harvesting charitable gifts from IRAs is great as retirement accounts total over $4.9 trillion. This presentation will focus on capturing these gifts.

  • Charitable Giving Options - Life Income Gifts

Speaker: Jeff Davine

Donors are not always aware of the many options that they have when it comes to making a charitable gift. Some donors think that charitable giving begins and ends with writing a check to their favorite charity. It is important to provide donors with information concerning alternative giving options, including options that can provide a stream of income. This presentation will provide an overview of some of the common charitable gifts that can provide income to a donor, including charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, and charitable remainder annuity trusts, as well as some of the "traps" and other issues that can arise in the context of funding a charitable life income gift.

  • The Second Act: Fueling Philanthropy with a Business Exit

Speaker: Micah Malouf

Private wealth is booming. As a Gift Planner, you have an opportunity to leverage the value of highly appreciated non-publicly traded assets (like privately-held business interests approaching an exit) to allow your donors to give significantly more to your organization than by using after-tax proceeds. Whether your organization chooses to accept the asset in-house or utilize a third-party charitable option like a community foundation or national donor advised fund, understanding the process beginning to end will help you earn the trust of your donors and the board amid a sometimes time-sensitive and intimidating gift acceptance process. This session will focus on this often under-utilized approach to charitable giving and review case studies highlighting key strategies related to C-Corp, S-Corp, LLC, private equity, restricted stock and hedge fund interests.
