    Legacy Giving: Doing Well by Doing Good

    Webinar Link

    Leave a little behind by paying it forward for senior dogs! Join estate and elder law attorney and animal advocate Peggy R. Hoyt as we explore legacy giving and estate planning strategies. Legacy giving includes ways to benefit your favorite charity during and after your lifetime while also saving taxes. Charities rely on the generosity of people like you to assist in meeting the goals and mission of the organization.


    We will discuss appreciated assets, qualified charitable deductions, donor-advised funds, charitable trusts, and family foundations as just a few of the ways you can do well by doing good. As an added bonus, Peggy will share ways to protect your pets through the use of a pet trust.
