Planned Giving

Atlanta Charitable Giving Lawyer

Charitable giving can be a very rewarding and heartwarming experience. Whether you wish to donate to a non-profit or charity –or whether you want to organize your ownprivate or public nonprofit– the thought of knowing that your hard-earned funds are being put to good use can offer great peace of mind and uplift your spirit.
