Continue Supporting Our Work After Your Lifetime

Beneficiary Designations

Passionate about supporting our community and the causes you care about through Rose Community Foundation even after your lifetime? It's not only possible, it's easy to do with a beneficiary designation. Just name Rose Community Foundation as a beneficiary to receive assets such as retirement plans and life insurance policies after you're gone. The beneficiary designation form is entirely separate from your will—which makes this approach an easy way to give.

Not only is it an easy way to give, but it's also flexible—you aren't locked into the choices you make today. You can review and adjust beneficiary designations anytime you want. In addition, you can designate that the proceeds be added to your donor-advised fund here at the Foundation.

An Example of How It Works

See How It Works

Couple smiling Robert and Carol treasure the financial help they've been able to give their children and their favorite organization over the years. Now that their kids are grown, Robert and Carol changed their estate plan so it could work harder for the people and causes they love. The couple updated their will to leave stocks and real estate to their kids, and they left $75,000 IRA to be transferred to their favorite nonprofit after their death. Because their favorite organization is tax-exempt, all $75,000 will help support our work.

If Robert and Carol had left the IRA to their children, approximately $18,000* would have gone to pay federal income taxes—leaving only $57,000 for their family's use. Robert and Carol are happy knowing they are making the most of their hard-earned money thanks to their updated estate plan.
