Aligning Charitable Giving with Your Values and Passion

August 7, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Wondering how your donations will be impacted by the new tax codes? Interested in planned giving but not sure which option is right for you? Questioning the legal implications of estate planning? Want to leave a lasting legacy and have your donations most impactful? Attend this interactive presentation and you can get the answers to these, and your own questions, by attending a talk and Q&A by a leading national Philanthropy expert, Eric Joranson, JD. Please come early for a reception and docent tour of this elegant historic mansion beginning at 6:30 p.m.  Join the conversation Tuesday, August 7 at 7:00 p.m. at Barrington’s White House. The program is free and open to the public.
Mr. Joranson is from the National Philanthropic Trust, a public charity that provides unbiased philanthropic expertise to donors and foundations so they can make decisions based on personal interests and passions, ensuring they reach their philanthropic goals. He will provide advice on customizing charitable planning, covering donor-advised funds, private foundations, endowments, charitable trusts, and gifts of assets such as real estate, stocks, and more. Following the presentation, Mr. Joranson will open the floor to your questions.
The Friends of Barrington’s White House Board of Directors: David Nelson, Tim Romenesko and Alfred St. John  will be on hand to help answer questions and provide information if you are interested in supporting the newly formed Friends of Barrington’s White House 501(c)3. Support for the cultural and community center will ensure the long term maintenance of the house and the continuation of high quality cultural and community programs.
