Strategic Responses to the Reduction in Gift Annuity Rates
In early April 2008, The American Council on Gift Annuities announced a significant reduction in its suggested maximum gift annuity rates, effective July 1, 2008.  In this Webinar, Frank Minton, outgoing Chair of the American Council on Gift Annuities (ACGA) and former Chair of its Rates Committee, will discuss the rationale underlying the new lower rates, analyze their effect on charitable remainders and annuity payment taxation, consider strategies charities might adopt to promote successful gift annuity programs going forward, and more.

Charitable Lead Trusts: A Golden Opportunity
The average lead trust is worth over $2.5 million.  All lead trusts benefit their charitable beneficiaries starting immediately, not at the end of a donor's long life.  Lead trusts offer wealthy individuals the opportunity to pass assets to heirs at substantial tax savings.  Despite these very attractive characteristics, surprisingly few lead trusts are created each year.  What's more, the currently very low monthly IRS discount rate should make lead trusts especially appealing.

This Webinar will cover the basics of charitable lead trusts, including the characteristics of a typical lead trust prospect, how non-grantor and grantor lead annuity trusts and unitrusts operate, and the tax considerations of each.  The session will conclude with case studies to illustrate classic situations where a lead trust can be an excellent gift planning solution.
