TRANSFER THE BLESSING We want to keep our estate plans as simple as possible. Just because you hear that someone else has a living trust, a charitable remainder trust, a donor advised fund, or an endowment doesn’t necessarily mean you have the same needs. You want a level of sophistication of gifting tools required by your situation. Your Congregational Gift Planner can help you begin surveying your situation and thinking about your goals. Contact Doug Taylor, St Luke’s Congregational Gift Planner, at 407-365-3408 or dtaylor@sllcs.org.
