Designate part or all of your IRA and other retirement accounts, bank accounts, or life insurance policies to the Food Bank.
Want to make a meaningful gift supporting the Food Bank’s mission even after your lifetime? It’s not only possible, it’s easy to do with a beneficiary designation.
You can designate the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank as a beneficiary of a part or all of your retirement plan assets or insurance policies by completing a form from your account provider, which is separate from your will or trust. Not only is it an easy way to give, but it is also flexible — you can review and adjust your beneficiary designations at any time.
As a nonprofit organization, we are tax-exempt and we will receive the full amount of what you designate to us from your plan.
1. Request a beneficiary designation form from the administrator of your retirement plan or insurance policy provider.
2. Complete the form, naming the Food Bank as a beneficiary. You can designate us as the primary beneficiary for a percentage or specific amount. You can also make us the contingent beneficiary so that we will receive the balance of your plan or policy only if your primary beneficiary doesn’t survive you.
3. Please, let us know when you have completed & submitted the form so we may welcome to the Food for Life Circle.
