Presenter Heidi Jark discusses the new IRS form 990 and how it can affect your charitable giving plans and contributions.
LEAVE A LEGACY® Southeast Michigan is a nine-county-wide campaign encouraging people to name non-profit organizations in their wills. The campaign, which is driven by the efforts of volunteers from non-profit groups, and financial, estate planning and law firms, is sponsored by the Planned Giving Roundtable of Southeast Michigan — a group of professionals in legal, financial, and allied fields as well as fundraising professionals whose focus is planned giving.
The campaign resulted from a growing concern for non-profit organizations, who because of increasingly less government funding, are fighting to exist. And the problem worsens because this forces non-profit groups to rely more on public support; however, although 81.5% of people in Southeast Michigan give annually, only 2.8% leave a charitable bequest at death. LEAVE A LEGACY is addressing this problem by educating people about the importance of planned gifts for the charities we depend on and support.
