Topics to be covered

5 things you need to do before a health crisis occurs

After a health crisis occurs, it may be too late to take certain actions that could have a significant impact on your ongoing care, your family’s ability to manage your affairs, and the handling of your estate.

You want to make things as easy as possible for your family members who will be looking after you, so thinking ahead is critical, and it need not involve a re-write of your entire estate plan.  There are a few key items that, if addressed, could make a dramatic difference for your loved ones.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The one document that should be probably be re-drafted if it is more than 5 years old
  • The most important conversation you need to have
  • How your cell phone can make a tough situation easier for your family

Giving it all away while keeping them all together: charitable family foundations – not just for the super wealthy

It all starts with your dreams and your hopes.

You dream of doing something big, something lasting, something beyond your family, home, and business that will have a positive impact on the world. Your deepest hope is that your family will stay connected after you are gone, and not drift apart as so many families do. What if you could unite them in a common purpose to work together for something lasting and worthwhile?

Creating a Charitable Family Foundation is a way to achieve both goals: it allows you to leave a legacy that lives on through your family.  It also has significant tax benefits.

A Charitable Family Foundation is a tool for doing good and a tool that allows you to start a tradition of giving that will involve your family for generations to come.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What a Charitable Family Foundation is, and what it isn’t
  • How to know if it is a good option for your family
  • The basics of how a Charitable Family Foundation operates
  • The possible Tax Benefits of creating a Charitable Family Foundation
