In addition to forming and representing tax-exempt entities, our Wealth Planning, Trusts, and Estates attorneys serve individuals in planning for gifts to charitable and religious entities through tax-favored forms, such as charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, private foundations, and charitable annuities. This planning is often carried out in connection with maximizing income and estate tax deductions. We work with our clients not only to maximize tax savings, but also to create and fulfill family goals, passions, and legacies.
We also advise charitable entities regarding their general legal needs, including corporate, trust, real estate, and contract matters. Our clients include charitable organizations involved in the arts, humanitarian aid, homeless shelters, social and sports clubs, civic organizations, religious groups, churches, private schools, and educational organizations. Our attorneys have served on boards of many charitable entities in the Denver metropolitan area, including the I Have A Dream Foundation, Junior League of Denver, Kempe Foundation, and Food Bank of the Rockies.
