The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, Discusses Ways In Which Charitable Giving Can Be Included When Establishing An Estate Plan
The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, writes about the generosity of most people and reminds readers that they can make charitable giving the gift of a lifetime and beyond through establishing an estate plan.
DECATUR, GA, November 18, 2022: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “Charitable Giving Through Estate Plans,” in which Ms. Pawley acknowledges how most people love to give to charitable causes.
Pawley states, “Since 2012, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving has become known as “Giving Tuesday.” She continues, “The idea came about to counteract the spending of Black Friday and Cyber Monday with philanthropic giving to charities in need of support. While it started in the U.S., the idea has made its way to more than 70 countries.” Pawley adds, “Without question, people are generous and do indeed love to give to charitable causes. We see this generosity on a regular basis with people giving to their spiritual homes – their churches, synagogues, temples et al.” She continues, “What many people don’t realize is that giving can be part of their estate plan. Most people understand that they can leave their assets to their heirs, but they don’t realize that they can also designate charitable giving through their estate plans too.”
According to Pawley, “Your generosity can be established during your lifetime through specific instructions in your estate plan as well as after your passing and beyond.” She emphasizes, “Charitable Giving through your Estate Plan is a great way to give to a cause or multiple causes that are close to your heart and may also be tax deductible.”
