Something to think about…
Do you need or want to make a large tax deductible contribution to charity this year, but do not know to what organization? You can create a donor-advised charitable trust fund within the Leota Braun Charitable Foundation, Inc., donate to it this tax year, and designate a charity or charities at a later time to be the beneficiaries of your generosity. Your gift will even earn income until the time it is distributed. Consult a foundation director.
