Over the past thirteen years, I have met with over 7,000 donors and professional advisors in the HNW and UHNW space to help with charitable planning. The meetings have run the gamut between 1:1 donor meetings, presentations to large groups of donors and professional advisors, and cross-functional planning meetings across multiple parties. Donors like to ask all sorts of questions – but certain questions recur with more regularity than others. This session will review what I view as the four most common questions asked by philanthropists during the planning process. In doing so, I will share my experiences in helping donors navigate these questions – all with the goal of helping them become effective philanthropists. This session will also touch on how recent tax reform may affect charitable giving strategies in 2018.
