Retirement Account or IRA

A simple way to ensure a legacy of active citizens is by naming Common Cause a beneficiary of a retirement, IRA, or other financial account policy.

By naming Common Cause to receive part or all of your account at death, your estate would receive a charitable estate tax deduction, and Common Cause would receive the proceeds without owing any income taxes, enabling us to put 100% of your gift toward our programs.

To include Common Cause as a beneficiary of your retirement or other financial planning plan, simply complete a “Change of Beneficiary” form with your plan provider. You will need the following information to complete the form:

Common Cause
Attn: Planned Giving
1133 19th Street NW, 9th Floor
Washington, DC 20036
Tax ID number 52-6078441

The John Gardner Legacy Circle is our way of expressing our heartfelt appreciation to those who make a significant commitment to a government by and for all future generations. Donors of retirement or other financial plans are invited into our John Gardner Legacy Circle.
