Beneficiary Designations

Naming KAC on a retirement or other account, or on a life insurance policy, is a simple way to provide for KAC’s future without writing or re-writing your will or living trust. These assets will pass directly to KAC without going through the probate process. Please ask your retirement plan administrator or institution for the appropriate form.

The following are some common assets for which beneficiary designations may be made.

Retirement Accounts

You can name KAC as a beneficiary of all or a specified percentage of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or other retirement plan. Because retirement assets are subject to both income and estate tax, they are often considered among the best assets to leave to charity. Individuals who inherit retirement plan assets must in most cases pay income tax on them.

As a charity, KAC would not pay taxes on these assets and would have full use of them.

There may be tax and financial planning implications in naming beneficiaries of a retirement plan, so you should consult with your attorney or tax advisor in arranging for the disposition of these assets.

Bank and Investment Accounts and Commercial Annuities

You may leave a legacy for KAC by naming us as a Transfer-on-Death (TOD) or Payable-on-Death (POD) beneficiary on a bank or investment account or a commercial annuity, where permitted by state law and the financial institution.

Life Insurance Policies

If you have a life insurance policy that is no longer needed for your family, designating KAC as a beneficiary offers a simple way to support our work.
