Giving from Your 401k or IRA Retirement Plan

Leave family the balance of savings and checking accounts, and donate double-taxed assets like IRAs to us.



You've worked hard and planned for retirement. Now, with a little creativity, you can leverage your retirement assets to benefit you and your family, reduce federal taxes, and support American Rivers far into the future.

How It Works

  • Name American Rivers as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified retirement plan.
  • Pass the balance of your retirement assets to American Rivers by contacting your plan administrator.
  • Important! Tell American Rivers about your gift. Your plan administrator is not obligated to notify us, so if you don't tell us, we may not know.
