Make a Significant Difference the Easy Way
Retirement Plan Gifts and Beneficiary Designations
You can support OPB by simply adding OPB as a beneficiary on your IRA or other retirement plan. It is the easiest way to ensure that OPB is accessible for the people and the community you care about long into the future. You can also add OPB as a beneficiary to your life insurance policy or commercial annuity too.
It works like this. You get a copy of your beneficiary designation form from your plan administrator and update the beneficiary list to include a percentage or a specific amount to OPB. You can update the form at any time giving you flexibility if your financial situation changes.
Check Out This Potential Scenario
Robert and Carol treasure the financial help they've been able to give their children and OPB over the years. Now that their kids are grown, Robert and Carol changed their estate plan so it could work harder for the people and causes they love. The couple updated their will to leave stocks and real estate to their kids. And they left us a $75,000 IRA to be transferred after their death. Because OPB is tax-exempt, all $75,000 will help support our mission.
If Robert and Carol had left the IRA to their children, approximately $18,000* would have gone to pay federal income taxes—leaving only $57,000 for their family's use. Robert and Carol are happy knowing they are making the most of their hard-earned money thanks to their updated estate plan.
*Based on an assumption of a 24 percent marginal income tax bracket.

Delay Your Payments
If you are younger than 60 or don't need your payments immediately, you can set up a deferred gift annuity. This allows you to delay receiving payments until a later date—such as when you reach retirement. To learn more, view and download the FREE guide Plan for Retirement With a Deferred Gift Annuity.
