Charitable Giving

Creating a lasting family legacy within a community where a family lives and works can be an important part of the overall wealth transfer plan.


Ice Miller attorneys work with families to create charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, donor advised funds and private foundations. We assist clients with navigating the complex rules associated with such giving techniques and also work with our clients to ensure their charitable intent is carried out.
