When Does “Forever” Mean Forever and Donor’s Intent

Clearly expressing donor intent in charitable giving or in your estate planning documents is vital. If I can help you clearly express your charitable intent or discuss your estate plan with you, please call or email me to schedule a convenient appointment.
