1746 Society Webinar: Tales from the Charitable Crypt

February 11th, 2020 / Gift Planning

Presented by Charles “Skip” D. Fox ’75, Partner, McGuireWoods
One would think that making gifts to Princeton or any other charity should be simple. However, the federal tax laws governing charitable giving are anything but simple. The failure to comply with these tax laws can cause donors to lose the income tax charitable deduction for gifts made during life or the estate tax charitable deduction for gifts made at death. This webinar session will examine mistakes made by others in making charitable gifts so that your charitable gifts go to charity and you get the full charitable deduction to which you are entitled.
