Designating Intercessors for America (IFA) as a beneficiary on your retirement account or life insurance policy is a simple way to support IFA without changing your will or living trust. Beneficiary designation gifts pass directly to IFA without going through the probate process and go right to work helping us serve a growing community of intercessors and providing vital prayer resources throughout the nation.

Retirement accounts

Many of our donor’s designate IFA as a beneficiary of all or a specified percentage of their IRA, 401(k), 403(b), or other retirement plan accounts.

Retirement plan assets are usually subject to high personal income tax rates when left to an individual. By donating to a charity all the money in these accounts can avoid taxes and be fully used in support of our mission.

How to name IFA as a beneficiary on your retirement accounts

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

Legal Name: Intercessors for America
Address: P.O. Box 915 Purcellville, VA 20134
Federal Tax ID #:  04-2576811
