The Friends of Crex does not endorse any particular method of donation or company, nor can we provide advice on complicated tax issues. We will strive to assist you as much as possible in your decision about a gift to our funds, but charitable giving and estate planning are complicated topics that generally require the advice of attorneys, financial planners, or tax consultants.
