Before you make a charitable gift, it's important to do your homework. Can you afford to make such a gift? How will that gift impact you – and the recipient? You certainly don't want your gift to leave a loved one with a substantial tax bill or make a grandchild ineligible for college financial aid.
As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I can help you explore different donation scenarios. I can also explain how those scenarios may affect your investment strategy. For example:
Various forms of charitable gifts will impact you, as the donor, differently. A cash donation and the resulting dip in savings are straightforward. But other types of charitable giving may offer you benefits.
Whether you are thinking about making a charitable gift or donation to a grandchild, adult child or your church, alma mater or other organization, I can help you explore your many options. Please call my office to get started.
