Gifts By Beneficiary Designation

It’s easy to leave a gift through a beneficiary designation. Simply name Kendal at Granville as a beneficiary, partial beneficiary or contingent beneficiary on any account, such as a:

  • Retirement Account: Leaving a gift to Kendal at Granville through your retirement account (such as an IRA) is one of the most tax-wise gifts you can make. Retirement account assets are rapidly becoming the preferred way for donors to make estate gifts to the charities they care for. Most retirement account plans require your beneficiaries/loved ones to pay income tax when they make withdrawals, just as you pay income tax on withdrawals during your lifetime. You can leave loved ones many other types of  assets they do not pay income tax on. And by leaving a portion of, or all of your retirement plan assets to Kendal at Granville (and perhaps your other favorite charitable causes), 100% of those assets are available for use by the charity because the charity does not pay any income tax.
  • Certificate of Deposit, Bank and Brokerage Accounts and Life Insurance Policy: Consider naming Kendal at Granville as a beneficiary of a certificate of deposit, other bank or brokerage account or a life insurance policy.
  • Donor Advised Fund: If you have a Donor Advised Fund account, you may name Kendal at Granville as a beneficiary of proceeds remaining in the account after your lifetime.

Just Follow These Simple Steps To Complete Your Gift By Beneficiary Designation:

  • Step 1: Request a beneficiary designation form from your retirement plan administrator or bank. This form – not your will – determines how these assets are distributed after your lifetime.
  • Step 2: Write in Kendal at Granville as beneficiary or partial beneficiary using our business address: 2158 Columbus Road, Granville, Ohio 43023.
  • Step 3: If the form requests a social security number, use our tax identification number: 31-1657346. If the form asks for a date of birth, use our date of incorporation: 01/14/1999.
  • Step 4: If you, or your plan administrator, have any questions, please contact our Finance Director Jennifer Bobak at (740) 321-0418.

Gifts By Will or Trust

Some donors prefer to use their Will or Trust as a means of directing an estate gift to Kendal at Granville. In your Will, you specify how you would like certain assets distributed after your lifetime. You can make specific provisions for loved ones, while also supporting the charitable causes close to your heart.

You simply designate a specific dollar amount, a particular asset or a percentage of your estate for Kendal at Granville.

You can also make Kendal at Granville a contingent beneficiary that receives assets in the event that your primary beneficiary does not survive you. Some donors use this option to ensure that after their family is provided for, a portion of the assets goes to support Kendal at Granville.

If you already have a Will and wish to make changes, your attorney can help you prepare a Codicil, which makes the changes official. Similarly, if you have a revocable living trust, your attorney can prepare an amendment to update your wishes.
