Charitable giving in Glendora, California is the donating of money or some other asset to a charitable cause.

The vast majority of charitable gifts are made using the most simple method allowed: giving the gift to the intended beneficiary.

What if, however, you want to give all or most of your assets to a charity, to really make a big difference? This is frequently not practical while the donor is alive, since they presumably have expenses, and want to maintain for themselves the lifestyle to which they're accustomed.
