Nothing strikes terror into the hearts of parents and grandparents more than the future of a disabled adult child when they are no longer around to serve as caregiver or guardian. Nearly one in five Americans are disabled, half of them severely according to the Centers for Disease Control. Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD, Alzheimer's Disease, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and intellectual disabilities are a growing concern for society and our donors. Increasingly, donors are addressing these challenges as part of their estate and financial planning process. The tools they use to help loved ones also create clear gift planning possibilities, and understanding them means we can help our supporters AND our institutions. In this session, you'll learn what Special Needs Trusts (SNT) and Pooled SNTs are, how they work and how to incorporate them in testamentary charitable gifts. John will guide you and your donors in evaluating the need for an SNT and locating service providers(both nonprofit and for-profit) who can help.
