Basics Session

Where There's a Will, There's More- A Basic Overview of IRA's, Transfer-on-death Accounts, and Donor-advised Funds
Douglas Nannene, Associate Director, Gift Planning Office, Tufts University


Download Handout


An increasing amount of wealth for donors nearing retirement age is now held in accounts that are not controlled by a person’s last will and testament. Examples include retirement accounts, brokerage accounts and even donor-advised funds. These assets offer different opportunities and strategies that can help inspire a donor to unlock their philanthropic potential through outright, testamentary, and blended gifts. Special attention will also be given to the IRA Charitable Rollover in light of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.



11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
(concurrent session)
