A strength of the Community Foundation is our ability to bring speakers, workshops and training to Grundy County so that our colleagues don’t have far to travel and decisions in Grundy County are being made according to best practices.

We do this for many topics and through the numerous networks that we convene or co-convene.

This includes the Behavioral Health Alliance, the Grundy Partnership for Children and the Grundy County Area Planners.

The next event is designed specifically for professional advisers, including attorneys, CPAs, financial advisers and insurance representatives.

Professional advisers from the region are invited – it is not limited to those practicing in Grundy County.

On Sept. 25, we are again hosting a local telecast of the national Estate & Charitable Gift Planning Institute.

The event begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. The local site is the conference room of the Grundy County Housing Authority, 1802 N. Division, Door 9.

The event is free, but RSVPs are required to receive materials. Coffee and lunch will be served.

Please send RSVPs to 815-941-0852 or julie@cfgrundycounty.com.

All-day participants will receive Continuing Education Units/Credits approved for Illinois professionals. Please contact me for details.

According to panelists Ann B. Burns and Kathryn W. Miree, recent changes in income, gift and estate tax rates and exclusion amounts have dramatically changed estate and charitable strategies for taxpayers.

And Congress is not finished yet. 

Both panelists will share new strategies, practical solutions and opportunities for planning after the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.

• Simple ideas to maximize lifetime and estate charitable gifts

• Ethical considerations in charitable and estate planning

• Why estate planning is more important than ever

• Personal liability of fiduciaries

• Gifts of life insurance

• Impact of Taxpayer Relief Act on charitable giving

• Accelerating charitable gifts

• Family businesses and charitable issues

• Funding charitable gifts with retirement assets

• Charitable giving when taxes are not an issue

Again, this event is free and open to professional advisers in the region, especially attorneys, CPAs, financial planners and insurance representatives.
