Gawthrop Presents: Dennise Antonelli on Charitable Gift Planning

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
