One of the simplest ways to contribute from a retirement account is to name the Center for Biological Diversity as a beneficiary for part or all of what remains in your retirement account when you no longer need it. This includes your individual retirement accounts (IRAs), Keogh plans, 401(k) plans, 403(b) plans and other qualified pension plans. The proceeds of these plans will be distributed outside probate and are thus entirely free from federal estate tax.

Please check with your professional advisors on the best way to make a contribution from your retirement account.

We appreciate your notification if you direct an IRA distribution gift to the Center so we can look for the check from your plan provider.
