Assets remain in your control during your lifetime and can be modified to address changing circumstances. Under current tax law, there is no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for your charitable bequests.

Please let us know if you have included Carlsbad Educational Foundation in your estate plan or if you are considering doing so. We would love to hear from you!
