Joint breakfast meeting with Central New York Community Foundation: Successful Charitable Gifts of Real Estate

Date: Wednesday, October 28, 2015
Time: 8:00am - 10:00am
Location: The Crowne Plaza, 701 E. Genesee St., Syracuse, NY
Speaker: Michael J. Degenhart and Peter Dunn

Real estate represents a large portion of our net worth, but it is often one of the last types of charitable gifts to be considered. This session will use case studies to cover the range of options for gifting real estate from basic approaches to creative charitable planning techniques. Attendees will learn to recognize real estate gift opportunities as well as understand the real estate gift process. When used in conjunction with other charitable gifts including life insurance and investments, real estate gifts can maximize the donor’s charitable impact as well as distribute assets effectively to their heirs.
