    This course provides an insightful exploration into the utilization of life insurance in charitable planning. Participants will learn about three key strategies: donating policies outright to charities, using life insurance for wealth replacement to balance philanthropy and family inheritance, and employing life insurance in funding charitable split-interest trusts like CRTs and CLTs. Ideal for professionals in estate planning and philanthropy, this course offers practical knowledge on integrating life insurance into philanthropic pursuits.
