Designing Gifts with Non-Cash Assets
(Extended Session)

Date:       October 19, 2016 
Location:  Playhouse in the Park

7:30- 8:15 a.m.  - Webinar shown to participants who do not view it in advance.
8:30 - 9:45 a.m. - Live Program

Topic:  Designing Gifts with Noncash Assets 

Our community is home to many millionaires next door. They are business owners, real estate investors, collectors, community boosters, and Baby Boomers thinking about transitioning from success to significance as they retire. There are great opportunities for philanthropy when businesses, real estate, land and other valuables are transferred. It’s clear, however, that noncash assets aren’t activated for philanthropy nearly as often as they should be. This two-part program will prepare you to discuss charitable strategies for noncash assets with your donors and clients. Your registration gives you access to both an on-demand webinar that introduces challenges and opportunities and a live program during which you’ll analyze a case with other advisors, guided by a panel of experts.
