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.

Advanced Case Study

Do SB 8, SB 9, and SB 10 provide new opportunities with our clients and donors? A case study exploring gifting opportunities using vacant land. 

In September 2021, Governor Newsom signed legislation to streamline the process for cities to zone for multi-family housing and increased residential density. Now, land that may have previously been viewed as essentially unusable has potential. In this donor case study, we will explore how we can help donors and clients develop a plan with charitable components when the value of the assets is potentially $45 million and the basis is nothing.

Mini Round Table

How to talk to your donors - and internal leadership - about real estate gifts

Moderated by Vince Fraumeni

Real estate gifts are transformative for organizations, but how do we get donors and our leadership on board with these gifts that are more complicated, involve more risk, and require multiple parties to be involved. In this session, we'll discuss road blocks attendees have faced and work through pitches to help make the case for these tax-smart gifts.
