Charitable Giving

Charitable giving is an important and rewarding means by which clients can express their values by supporting causes and communities that are important to them.  Charitable giving also can be financially advantageous. 

Cochran Allan is uniquely poised to help clients design and implement their philanthropic legacies. In particular, Natanya Allan has extensive experience working with charitable organizations and she enjoys sharing her knowledge with clients.  She has counseled large and small charitable organizations for more than a decade, and previously worked in the General Counsel’s office of two large charities.

Our charitable work for donors includes:

  • General planning, including the identification of optimal assets and timing for gifts from a tax perspective
  • Sophisticated tax-wise giving structures, such as charitable lead and remainder trusts
  • Formation of private family foundations and supporting organizations
  • Advice regarding donor advised funds
  • Governance, compliance and succession planning for family foundations
  • Development of mission statements and stewardship plans
  • Preparation of gift or grant agreements to ensure long‑term adherence to donor restrictions and accountability by charitable recipients

Simply stated, we help donors give in a way that protects their philanthropic goals and donor intent while maximizing tax benefits.
