Easy Ways to Give
Gifts Made by Beneficiary Designations
These are easy gifts to set up. Simply contact the plan administrator of your funds to obtain a beneficiary designation form.

They are revocable gifts and can be updated if your circumstances change. These gifts pass directly to the charity outside of the probate of your estate, which means your gift can be put to work at Americans for Peace now without waiting for the probate process to be finished.
