In the wake of 2017 tax reform, professional advisors were left wondering what the effect of charitable giving would be on nonprofit organizations. While we believe that giving is primarily an act of the heart, tax incentives can impact giving levels and the timing of gifts. Together, we will review the 2017 tax laws changes, discuss the initial known impact on philanthropic trends and consider solutions to help your clients continue to give to the organizations they love to support.
