Let's Talk About Planned Giving: 

Q & A with Marvin S. Silver of Christopher, Hays, Wojcik & Mavricos, LLP

      Q: How does philanthropy come up in your conversation
with a client?

Clients may bring up their interest in leaving a legacy. If appropriate, I'll ask if a client has thoughts about charitable giving. For example, if I'm advising a widowed individual, a mature couple without heirs, or people who have dedicated their lives to afield such as education, I'm likely to raise the question.
  Q: How might you bring up the Greater Worcester Community Foundation?
A: If a client considers leaving a legacy, the Foundation can be a helpful resource to satisfy this desire. It has a proven and reliable structure for giving, invests funds well and administers grants in perpetuity, so donors fulfill their wishes now and in the future. Some clients want to set up a scholarship to honor or memorialize a loved one. The Foundation offers a wonderful structure to administer the scholarship, including volunteer committees who select recipients - activities that could be a real burden to do on one's own.
