Art and other collectibles are the most difficult assets to incorporate into an overall estate and financial plan.  Given the passionate nature of these assets, the next generation is not interested in receiving them, as their tastes or lifestyles may differ.  For many collectors, the charitable solution if the best.  This presentation will explore the myriad rules and complexities of donating art and collectibles to charity, both during life and at death.
