"Doing Well by Doing Good"


Giving to charity can be one of the most rewarding ways to spend money. But did you know that there are many easy ways to support the organizations and causes closest to your heart – that also carry advantages with your estate plan?

On Saturday, March 3rd, Lou talked with John Eberle of The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region. The Community Foundation gives millions of dollars each year in grants to local nonprofits and scholarships to local students. John and Lou described the simple ways to make the most of your charitable giving during your lifetime, and how to make the impact of your generosity last for generations to come.

They also covered how charitable giving during your lifetime, and after death through a will, may significantly lower gift and estate taxes. In addition, your favorite charity can be the beneficiary of a Trust.
