Naming HumanKind as a beneficiary on your retirement account or life insurance policy is a simple and powerful way to support

the life altering work of our organization without changing your will or living trust. Beneficiary designation gifts pass directly to HumanKind without going through the probate process and go right to work to help us provide support for families in crisis.


Retirement Accounts

Many of our donors name HumanKind as a beneficiary of all or a specified percentage of their 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.

How to Name HumanKind as a Beneficiary on Your Retirement Accounts

Ask your retirement plan administrator or financial institution for a change of beneficiary form. Please list us as:

Legal Name: Presbyterian Homes and Family Services, Inc (DBA HumanKind)
Address: 1903 HumanKind Way, Lynchburg, VA 24503
Federal Tax ID #: 54-0346118
Notify Us of Your Beneficiary Designation
