Development and management of charitable remainder trusts.

A charitable remainder trust may be funded with either highly appreciated assets, allowing for deferment of gains tax, or cash. The number of variables for this irrevocable trust are virtually limitless. That’s where WAF comes in—to advise with gift and tax planning. In addition, we can manage the trust throughout its duration.

WAF provides a wealth of services, including:

  • Accounting duties.
  • Preparing and filing taxes.
  • Assisting in the creation of gift plans.
  • Undertaking the distribution of gifts.
  • Managing donor files.
  • Managing endowments.
  • Providing education.
  • Assist with investments.

Donor Assistance

We also can assist donors in helping them make gifts to the charities of their choice. While we don’t offer legal advice to donors, we can explain how various gift options may be beneficial. The foundation does not draft instruments which provide a gift to itself.
