Name RAFI-USA as a beneficiary

Naming Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA (RAFI-USA) as a beneficiary on your retirement account or life insurance policy is a simple and powerful way to support the lifesaving work of our organization without changing your will or living trust. Beneficiary designation gifts pass directly to RAFI-USA without going through the probate process and go right to work to help us support farmers and their communities.

  • On your retirement accounts. Designate all or a specified percentage of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), or other retirement plan. Individuals who inherit retirement plan assets are usually required to pay income tax on them, so they’re often considered among the best assets to leave to charity. Ask your retirement plan administrator or financial institution for a change of beneficiary form.
  • On your life insurance policies. If you have a life insurance policy that is no longer needed for your family, designating RAFI-USA as a beneficiary is a simple way to support our work.

We hope you’ll let us know that you have named RAFI-USA as a beneficiary so that we can thank you. (Link to [email protected].)
