3 Steps to Making a Beneficiary Gift

Did you know that the beneficiaries named on a retirement plan or life insurance policy determine who will receive these funds, even if they are designated differently in your will? Did you also know that funds remaining in your IRA may be subject to multiple taxes if left to your estate?

If you are considering including a gift for Catholic Foundation of West Michigan in your will, we have a simple solution. Name Catholic Foundation of West Michigan as a beneficiary or partial beneficiary of your retirement plan and leave other less-taxed assets to your family.

It's Easy as 1, 2, 3!

  • 1. Request a "change of beneficiary" form from your plan administrator.
  • 2. List Catholic Foundation of West Michigan as beneficiary at the following address:
    • Catholic Foundation of West Michigan
    • 360 Division Ave. S
    • Grand Rapids, MI, 49503
    • EIN #: 38-3298981
  • 3. Let us know so we can thank you!
