Nowadays, supporting your favorite charities can be as easy as sending a text. But supporting your favorite charities thoughtfully, in a way that maximizes your gift’s impact, takes advantage of tax benefits and complements your broader wealth management plans? That takes a deep understanding, both of current tax regulations and your vision for your future.
