California Court of Appeal

Boys and Girls Club of Petaluma v. Walsh, a120285

Probate court's modification of a charitable trust in 2007 pursuant to Probate Code section 15403 is affirmed where: 1) "all beneficiaries" of the charitable trust consented to the modification in accordance with section 15403(a); and 2) the broad discretion conferred up on the trustees did not constitute a "material purpose" which would prevent a probate court from modifying the charitable trust pursuant to section 15403(b).
