The Chicago Council on Planned Giving is one of my favorite groups. They meet 5 times per year, in addition to a symposium held in May or June, to network and to teach charities the latest in planned giving.
On Tuesday, November 14, I will be moderating a panel discussion on Gifts Gone Bad: Tales from the Litigators. Our panel consists of an attorney from the Attorney General’s office, a litigator from a west suburban law firm, a retired probate judge, and an associate general counsel from the Art Institute.
We will discuss problems with pledges and incomplete gifts, some of the major reasons a gift may go bad, what the probate and trust administration is about, and what remedies are available to fix or reform a gift that didn’t go as planned.
The discussion will be held on November 14, starting at 10:30 at the University Club at 76 E Monroe, Chicago. You can more information at www.ccpgonline.org.
