    Lead Trusts -- What To Do and Not To Do (Webinar)

    Location: Woodside Bible Church
    6600 Rochester Road, Troy, MI 48085
    Description: Lead trusts offer wealthy individuals the opportunity to pass assets to their heirs at substantial tax savings while providing immediate benefits to one or more charities they care about. What's more, the very low monthly IRS discount rate has made lead trusts especially appealing during the last several years. The Fed is poised to start raising interest rates, however, creating some urgency to turn lead trust prospects into lead trust donors.

    You may have only a few legitimate lead trust prospects in your pool of supporters, but it takes only one to make a big difference to your organization. In this webinar, we will briefly cover the basics of how a lead trust works, and then focus on what to look for in a lead trust prospect, what information a lead trust prospect and his or her adivosrs will find most helpful, and what questions to anticipate. Our discussion will be informed by the experience of advisors and gift planners who have been involved in the creation of numerous lead trusts.
