· Leave more tax-free wealth to heirs (pass 100% of your estate tax-free using a Wealth Enhancement Trust™ in conjunction with a Family Foundation)
* Any such Wealth Enhancement Trust planning is done outside and independent of The American Foundation and is an idea that we promote to the extent that it allows donors to increase their philanthropy.
· Create a family legacy
· Benefit society with a Foundation under your family’s perpetual direction – provide annual support to family-selected charities, religious organizations and/or causes
