Between 2000 and 2050 $12 trillion is expected to go to charity in the form of bequests.
That’s $12 TRILLION!
Or, 12,000 X ONE BILLION.
Imagine a pile of a billion dollars. Now imagine 12,000. Hard to do, huh?
Here’s some help thanks to Susan DameGreene’s website. A six inch pile of $1,000 bills equals $1 million dollars. Stack those piles as high as the Washington Monument and you get $1 trillion dollars. So you’d need twelve of those to envision $12 trillion dollars.
All that is going to charity. But how much will go to your charity? Now— that depends on how much time and effort you spend promoting planned giving.
