What is the best way to donate to my favorite charity?


There are two different ways that you can contribute to the charity or nonprofit of your choice – after death and during life.

If you want to help your favorite nonprofit after your death, you need to make an estate plan. You cannot make charitable donations after your life without a will or trust in place.

If you are going to make charitable contributions during your life, look at non-cash assets such as IRAs, life insurance policies, real property as well as cash assets in order to give as much and as wisely as possible.
