    Have you donated to a charity this year? Did you know that you can donate stocks and other property to a non-profit? Interested in learning more about alternative charitable giving vehicles, including donor-advised funds that allow you to grow investments tax-free for charitable giving? No matter the level of your charitable giving, join us for a primer and discussion of important tax planning considerations to keep in mind. We are excited to have Lauren Azebu, tax partner at Steptoe & Johnson LLP, who will share an overview of the tax issues involved in determining where to give, what to give, when to give, and how much to give. Tax discussions don’t have to be boring! Bring your charitable spirit and join us for a dynamic discussion.
