As wealth advisors since 1967, we have seen what a tremendous positive difference philanthropy can make in the lives of the donors as well as the recipient organizations. Yet charitable giving is not something that is typically built into the estate plans of most high-net-worth families and individuals. Giving tends to be done in a haphazard way, lacking continuity and purpose. As part of our effort to encourage thoughtful planned giving, Laird Norton has partnered with the organization Leave10 and KCTS to sponsor ads that encourage leaving 10% of your estate to charity. Featured in the ads, which have been airing on KCTS this fall, are individuals who have taken the Leave10 Pledge, including LNWM CEO and President Bob Moser. We hope their stories will inspire thousands of KCTS 9 viewers to follow their example!
