8 Reasons To Put Charitable Giving In Your Estate Plan
There are only three places to leave your money when you are gone – heirs, charity or taxes. For many people, charity has not been part of the thinking, but this is changing. Warren Buffett and Bill & Melinda Gates have created a project called “The Giving Pledge,” aimed at enrolling billionaires to give at least 50% of their estates to charities of their choice, during their lifetimes or through their estate plans. Volunteer efforts like “The Giving Pledge” have been formed nationwide to encourage ordinary citizens to leave a gift to their chosen charities in their estates. It appears a new trend has started, because people who might never have thought to leave money to anyone but their relatives are beginning to think of their legacies in a new way.
