Naming Slide Ranch as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or donating funds from your IRA after your death is a thoughtful and lasting way help inspire future generations of environmental stewards.

Giving through your Life Insurance

You can provide now for a future gift by naming Slide Ranch as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.  At death, the proceeds from the policy are paid to Slide Ranch, and we apply them to general purposes or a program you have designated.

Donating a Portion of Your IRA

To designate all or part of what remains in your IRA at death to Slide Ranch, you must change the IRA's beneficiary designation. The IRA is the controlling document in this matter, not your will or living trust. To do this:

  • Contact whoever manages your IRA account and ask for a beneficiary designation form.

  • Tell your IRA account manager that you want to designate Slide Ranch, a qualified California nonprofit organization, as a beneficiary of the account. Slide Ranch's EIN is 23-7069469.

  • Follow your account manager's instructions exactly.

Once you have made these changes, please notify us at:

We will make sure your wishes are carried out, and include you in Slide Ranch Legacy Society acknowledgements and events .
