CGPCO Speakers Fund:

The Board of Trustees of the Charitable Gift Planners of Central Ohio chapter has created a fund to support costs associated with bringing exceptional speakers from outside the Central Ohio area to Columbus on a periodic basis. The Speakers Fund was seeded in 2012 with gifts from the COPGC Board of Trustees. We now invite members of the Council to join the Board in making tax deductible gifts to COPGC for this purpose.

Please make checks payable to the “Charitable Gift Planners of Central Ohio” (with “Speakers Fund” on the memo line) and send your gift to Michael O’Sullivan, CGPCO, Post Office Box 961, Columbus, OH 43216-0951.  Please also feel free to stop by the registration table at our monthly luncheons with your gift/check. Thank you for your consideration and support!

“Steps You Can Take to Avoid Estate Litigation and How to Deal With It If It Happens Anyway”

.

This informative program will cover the following:

Steps a charitable development officer can take to avoid contests over charitable bequests in the first place

If there is a contest (whether over a will, trust or beneficiary designation), what are the grounds for bringing it, e.g., mental incompetence, duress, undue influence.

Who has the burden of proof (the contestant) and what do they need to do in order to prove one of these grounds?  What does a charity (or the estate or trust of which it is a beneficiary) do to respond? Misuse of powers of attorney during a donor’s lifetime, with the effect of decreasing what is left for charity under a donor’s estate plan.  What is the charity’s recourse, e.g., an intentional interference with expectancy of inheritance claim?

.

Role of the Ohio attorney general in litigation involving charity, i.e., the AG is our statutorily-mandated friend
