SEPTEMBER GENERAL MEETING

Thursday, September 15, 2022
In-Person at the University Club of Pasadena
8:30 AM - 11:15 AM

The Los Angeles Council of Charitable Gift Planners holds four General Meetings each year. Our General Meetings are like attending a half-day conference on gift planning. Attendees benefit from hearing two different presentations at either the beginner or advanced level. Come learn the latest concepts and techniques to help your donors or clients make planned gifts that meet their financial and philanthropic goals. Sessions may include facilitated breakouts so you can engage with your fellow attendees.

Consider having lunch with your LACGP colleagues at one of these restaurants near the University Club.

Members: $75 | Non-Members: $85


Morning Session

Joining the Blockchain: How to Think About Potential Gifts of Cryptocurrency and NFTs

Cryptocurrency and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are new and significant asset classes that have emerged over the past several years. Regardless of whether you view them as a fad or a permanent part of our economy, donating these assets can carry significant tax benefits, which means that organizations need to understand them and whether and how they should accept them.

This presentation will cover the basics of what they are and how the key concepts of gift planning apply to them (e.g. deductions, appraisals, timing, agreements, managing risk) so that your organization can benefit from the public fascination with cryptocurrency and NFTs.

Karl Mill graduated from Columbia Law School in 2013 and practiced trust, estate, and tax law for several years at DLA Piper. Prior to founding Mill Law Center, Karl Mill was a partner at Adler & Colvin, a boutique law firm serving non-profits and their donors. Karl continues to advise a broad range of non-profit organizations, including everything from the most innovative start-ups to some of the largest, most established foundations and charities around the country.

Karl’s areas of expertise include private foundations, public charities, impact investment, social enterprise, and charitable gift planning.

Mini Round Table
