Wealthy households donated an average of $43,195 in 2020, according to a survey on high-net-worth people’s charitable giving from Bank of America and the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University. That’s up nearly 48% from 2017, the last time the survey was conducted when affluent households gave an average of $29,269.
Charitable giving is a fundamental part of your client's lives.
When Might a Client Consider Philanthropy?
Legacy Endowment partners with you to ensure that your clients make the most of financial and philanthropic opportunities that come with major life events and financial windfalls. Whether expected or out of the blue, these events bring new possibilities as well as potential tax consequences for your clients and their families.
- Selling appreciated property (stock, real estate, family business, or other closely-held business interest) that would result in capital gains tax
- Estate planning, particularly if the client has estate tax implications or has no heirs
- Receiving a financial windfall, such as an inheritance or bonus
- Having ownership interest in a company going public
- Tax planning around IRAs and other retirement funds
