About this event

The sky is not falling! Did you know that with the passing of the “Tax Cut & Jobs Act of 2017”, that is it now an opportune time to discuss leaving a legacy with your donors? When Congress enacted the “Tax Cut & Jobs Act of 2017”, tax rates were lowered, and many popular deductions were curtailed or eliminated. Thankfully, the charitable deduction was retained and enhanced for many taxpayers who will still benefit from itemizing their gifts and other deductions for tax purposes. This presentation will clarify the new tax law changes that impact charitable gifts and will explore the most effective ways to assist individuals in leaving their legacy.  

The goal of this presentation is to:

  • Review the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017
  • Discuss how the new tax law makes Planned Giving more powerful
  • Highlight Implications for nonprofit organizations
