Name Bayshore Center at Bivalve
as a Charity Beneficiary
Retirement Plans and Life Insurance Policies

Naming Bayshore Center at Bivalve (BCB) as a beneficiary on your retirement account or life insurance policy is a simple and powerful way to support the continuing work of our organization without changing your will or living trust. Beneficiary designation gifts pass directly to BCB without going through the probate process and go right to work to further the understanding of the human impact on the environment.

Retirement accounts

Many of our donors name BCB 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.

Life insurance policies

If you have a life insurance policy that is no longer needed for your family, designating BCB as a beneficiary is a simple way to support our work.

To name BCB as a beneficiary on your retirement account or insurance policy:

Contact your retirement plan administrator, financial institution or insurance company for a change of beneficiary form.

Please list us as:
Legal Name: Bayshore Center at Bivalve
