Gawthrop Greenwood partner Denise Antonelli, an estate planning lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, was invited by the Chester County Community Foundation to speak on charitable gift planning.
Presenting before local nonprofit leaders, Antonelli served on a three-person panel called “Attracting Endowed & Planned Gifts: The Role of Professional Advisors in Charitable Gift Planning.” She gave her legal perspective on the ways donors and nonprofits can benefit from planned giving, and how professional advisors can support and advance those efforts. Key topics included:
- Who should focus on charitable giving? Varying income levels & goals
- How charities can better position themselves to be the beneficiaries of planned gifts
- Ensuring that a donor’s wishes are understood and carried out
Taking place June 14, 2019 at The Lincoln Building in West Chester, PA, the event was part of the C4 Workshop Series presented by the Chester County Community Foundation, which is celebrating 25 years of philanthropy this year. Antonelli has taken part in previous panels with the Chester County Community Foundation, as well as with the Chester County Estate Planning Council, where she serves as a board member. She also serves as board president for the nonprofit ACT in Faith of Greater West Chester, a social service agency serving the un- and underemployed.
