Want to talk about your experience with the Florida Bar on-air? call 305-773-5167
Disbar The Florida Bar is a 501 (c)(4). 501(c)(4) organizations are corporations operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare, the net earnings of which are devoted exclusively to charitable, educational, or recreational purposes. Unlike 501(c)(3) organizations, 501(c) (4) organizations may lobby for legislation; they may also participate in political campaigns and elections, as long as campaigning is not the organization’s primary purpose.
Contributions to 501(c)(4) organizations are not deductible as charitable contributions. 501(c)(4) organizations are not required to disclose their donors publicly. This aspect of the law has led to extensive use of the 501(c)(4) provisions for organizations that are actively involved in lobbying.
“Listen Now” and “Live Streaming” links only work when the show is on the air, 2:00pm to 3:00pm weekdays
Les Winston is a graduate of the University of Miami, and he’s spent his last 40 years improving the way people act in the financial services industry. Though Winston has a diverse background in the financial world, his focus for the better part of the last 25 years has been the philanthropic planning industry. Since 1985, he has been helping people plan their estates and more importantly, plan what money they are going to give to charity out of those estates.
Winston is the host of a radio show called Funny Money, which has been on the air since 1998. It currently runs in the Miami area on 880 The Biz, a local Bloomberg affiliate. On top of his role as a public figure, Winston holds the highest distinction for philanthropic planners. That is the Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy designation, or CAP as it is more appropriately known. Only a few planners around the country have that distinction, and they are all at the top of their profession in terms of helping people plan their retirement dollars.
