Noon-1:15 Lunch and Program


“Selling Assets Using a Charitable Remainder Trust”

Presenter: Gregory W. Baker, J.D., ChFC®, CFP®, CAP*


Join Greg as he reviews three common scenarios that donors face in selling an asset and how a charitable remainder trust (CRT) met each donor’s goals.

A CRT is a versatile and tax-effective tool that enables donors to set aside assets for the future benefit of a charity while receiving income for life. 

This program will offer learning skills for all levels by covering CRT fundamentals as well as more advanced techniques. 

Plus, it will pose insights into verbal cues and situations which can spark your ability to raise CRT as a planning tool to your donors.
