You can designate The Center for American Values as a beneficiary of part or all the remainder of your IRA or retirement plan.
Distributions from retirement plans at the death of the survivor of the account-holder can be subject to both income and estate taxes. In a large estate, these taxes can leave less than 30 cents on the dollar of the plan’s balance for your children or other heirs.
By naming The Center for American Values as the beneficiary of the remainder of your retirement plan, 100 percent of the plan’s balance is available for the Center’s use, since the distribution avoids both income and estate taxes.
