Charitable Giving & Foundations

When considering their legacy, many of our clients make charitable giving a priority. By designing the right structure for your philanthropic goals, Maslon Estate Planning attorneys can maximize the impact of your charitable giving while minimizing your tax burden and concerns. We'll help you determine the most effective financial approach to accomplish your giving goals and address governance issues with creative solutions that accommodate varied philanthropic values, preferences, and levels of involvement within your family.

Our experience includes the development of tax-exempt organizations and charitable trusts of all varieties—and obtaining favorable U.S. Treasury Department rulings on tax-exempt status. You'll get tailored, personalized service in the proper administration of your trust or tax-exempt organization—including handling state and federal tax returns, distributions, officer and director issues, and other matters, so that you can feel confident about the ongoing effectiveness of your giving.
