Maximize Your Giving With a Customized Solution Made Just for You

For many, the will to give or charitable intent is strong, but the lack of knowledge to carry out effective charity planning can be a limiting factor. Supporting a charity is relatively straightforward, but some processes can maximize the value of your contributions. 

With the help of an experienced charitable planning firm, you can simultaneously give philanthropic gifts that benefit your chosen charity and improve your financial health. 

Charitable planning is an effort to fulfill your philanthropic goals and obtain the most tax-efficient outcomes for you. However, there is no one-size-fits-all charitable estate planning approach, as your plan will depend on your current income level, tax situation, and financial goals.

Therefore, it helps to have a knowledgeable charitable planning attorney to assist you in hitting your objectives, whatever those may be. The estate and tax attorneys at Wiles Law are honored to help clients give back in ways that make the most significant impact.

Charitable Planning

There are two general categories for charitable gifts. Lifetime gifts provide an income tax deduction for the year it is given. They also allow you to give an appreciated asset to a non-profit organization without paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation. However, planned gifts encompass situations when a non-profit entity receives the benefits of the gift after the donor passes away. 


There are many vehicles for charitable planned giving, including:

Private foundations

Life insurance beneficiaries

Charitable remainder trusts

Charitable gift annuities

Donor-advised funds

IRA and retirement plan beneficiaries


No matter what type of gift you're giving or the vehicle you're planning to use, your intended gifts will not happen as you wished without proper charitable estate planning.

Four Benefits of Charity Planning

Create the Future You Envisioned Through Planned Giving

Create a Legacy

Donors can leave a legacy behind after they pass through charitable planning. It ensures that your values are given and allows you to continue making charitable donations beyond your lifetime. Many donors make planned gifts as testamentary bequests to charities in their wills. For example, life insurance is one of the most prevalent means to leverage charitable giving.

Tax Deductions

Charity planning can be implemented through a trust which creates an income stream that benefits the charity of your choice. This will allow you to maximize tax savings on weekly or monthly donations. There are various ways to defer taxes through charitable giving. To maximize your giving, it's best to consult professionals on which strategies fit best with your financial goals.

Greater Opportunity To Give

People who plan and budget their assets will be able to give more than those who don't. Charity planning gives you more time to research the charities you support and how your gifts change the lives of the beneficiaries. Also, making preparations in advance allows you to see which areas of your financial plan need help. An attorney lets you plan your charitable giving, helping you achieve your philanthropic and financial goals with less hassle. 

Help a Cause You Want To Support

Charitable estate planning does give you tax benefits, but there's still no greater feeling than donating to a cause you believe in. You can contribute to any charity as long as it is recognized by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. If you wish to donate to more than one organization, you may do so. If you've never been partial to a charity, our attorneys can provide options based on your intentions and interests.
