Charitable Giving and Estate Planning
Registered general securities principal and seasoned financial advisor Robert Gill established Epic Wealth Management in 2015. Robert Gill has helped clients from across New Jersey with all aspects of estate and wealth planning, including charitable giving plans.
For many people, philanthropic giving is a pillar of their long-term estate planning. While charitable donations have tax benefits, donors often give to a beloved charity to establish a legacy and ensure that the organization can continue to make an impact.
Before donors choose a donation method, they should research the capacity of the intended recipient to process gifts. While cash is accepted by nearly all nonprofits, some other types of asset donations may be difficult for small or less sophisticated organizations to collect. In these cases, donors can use a donor-advised fund or a knowledgable community foundation to help allocate their assets to their preferred charities.
