Your charitable giving says more about who you are and the legacy you want to leave. Of the many financial tools available to individuals with substantial assets - your support to foundations and charities through endowments and trusts is the most powerful statement of your values and hopes.
Of course you already know that your gifts of cash, stocks and bonds to charity receive tax deductions...
