Name Coburn Place as a Beneficiary

Naming Coburn Place Safe Haven 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.

Retirement accounts

Many of our donors name Coburn Place 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.

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

Legal Name: Coburn Place Safehaven II
Address: 604 E. 38th St., Indianapolis, IN 46205
