Many people believe there is a human instinct to contribute to one’s community and to give your life for something larger than yourself. This drive inspires people to donate their money and time to charities. Charitable gifts are something that can be done as part of someone’s estate planning. As a paralegal, I’ve seen charitable gifts in estate planning for individuals and estate planning for families. The organizations that can benefit from your charitable gifts are endless. Many people choose well known charities, but some prefer local charities, faith communities, and advocacy organizations. The ways to make charitable gifts are as varied as the organizations that benefit. Some people choose to give a percentage of their assets and other people choose charitable gifts to be made if their beneficiaries of their wills are unable to receive their gifts. For people with high assets, charitable gifts can offset estate taxes.
