Mission Statement

The committees of the Charitable Planning and Organizations Group are concerned with both sides of the charitable giving process and with the federal and state regulation of charitable giving and charitable donees. The focus of the Charitable Planning Committee is on the various tax and non-tax issues for the donor, while the charity's concerns are addressed by the Charitable Organizations Committee. The Committee on Legislative and Regulatory and Issues focuses on the federal and state regulatory issues related to charitable giving and charitable entities.

Quarterly Membership Conference Call

October 1, 2014

If you missed our most recent quarterly group membership call on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 11:00 AM Central (12:00 PM Eastern) time, you can still read our speaker's ACTEC article posted below.

Last quarter's call featured Richard Franklin, McArthur Franklin PLLC. Through a detailed example, Richard illustrated the use of a charitable lead annuity trust (CLAT) as the intermediary for any large testamentary gift to a family foundation. The results of this strategy are better than expected: Monte Carlo simulations show that the family's foundation is left with a larger endowment than if the CLAT were not used, regardless of investment performance. Among other benefits for the surviving family is a possible reinfusion of wealth upon the CLAT termination. Wealthy families that contemplate large charitable transfers upon death will appreciate knowing of this approach.

Call-in number: 866-646-6488 Participant pass code: 7255887619

Please mark your calendars for the next three Group membership calls of the ABA's 2014-15 fiscal year at 11:00 a.m. Central on

Wednesday, January 8;
Wednesday, April 1; and Wednesday, July 8.

Also, please contact Tom Featherston (Tom_Featherston@baylor.edu), the Trust and Estates editor for Probate and Property, if you have an idea for an article and can meet the November 1 submission deadline. This is a wonderful opportunity for you all!
