Planned giving refers to the process of making a charitable gift of estate assets to a nonprofit organization. This requires consideration and planning in light of the donor's overall estate plan.
Making arrangements for planned gifts requires the assistance of a qualified professional advisor to complete. Because of the size and potential impact of such gifts, a donor should consult with an advisor before completing the process.
