As 2019 comes to a close, your calendars are likely busy with last-minute appointments to help clients finalize their year-end financial decisions. In the interest of time, we have a list of quick ways that you can help your charitably-minded clients make the most of December.
Be Mindful of Giving Deadlines
Gifts must be complete by December 31 in order to receive a 2019 charitable tax deduction. Review our 2019 giving deadlines here.
Note Lowered Recommended Gift Annuity Rates
