Proactive Charitable Giving: A Balancing Act

Charity begins at home, so they say. This may be where it starts, but your estate plan is where your charity may end. Most of us will donate time or money to one cause or another during our lifetimes (who doesn't love Girl Guide cookies?). When we die, however, our charity will die with us unless we proactively make plans to carry it forward. Failing to plan means by default choosing not to make charity a part of your estate plan. This may be what you intend, but as with all aspects of your estate plan, a careful consideration of available options and making a conscious decision is usually preferable to letting the decision be made for you.
