Morning Seminar - Nuts & Bolts (9:00 AM - 11:00 AM)

Would Your Charity Accept A Gift Of The Chrysler Building?

Session by Allen Thomas JD, CFRE, CAP

This presentation will offer strategies to identify, cultivate and successfully complete more real property donations to your charity. We will start with the issues of promoting gifts of real estate and developing internal processes for accepting such gifts. We will then transition into more complex examples of planned gifts of real estate.  Upon completion, the seminar participant will a.) have greater comfort with planned gifts funded by real estate, b.) have more specific knowledge about reviewing and analyzing such gifts and c.) make more informed recommendations to your organization about real estate donations. This session is approved for CLE, CPE, and CFRE credits.


Morning Seminar - Advanced (9:00 AM - 11:00 AM)

New Developments in Planned Giving – and Some Old Tricks and Traps

Session by Lawrence P. Katzenstein, JD

This presentation is a deep dive into the 2018 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act covering new cases and rulings in planned giving. Topics include income, gift, and estate tax consequences of charitable transfers, use of qualified contingencies in charitable remainder trusts, changes in charitable deductions for ESBT income, a discussion of governing instruments’ role in substantiating trust deductions as well as some creative planning opportunities resulting from the Act. This session is approved for CLE, CPE, and CFRE credits.
