Not everyone wants to commit to making a gift in their wills or trusts. Some prefer the increased flexibility that a beneficiary designation provides by using:
- IRAs and retirement plans
- Life insurance policies
- Donor-advised funds
- Commercial annuities
It is very simple to name the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) as a beneficiary. Start by requesting a change-of-beneficiary form from your policy administrator or download the form from your provider's website. Make your desired changes and return the form to establish your gift.

An Example from AWF
Gary Baxel discovered the important work AWF was doing in 2013. He was so impressed by the breadth of our work that he decided to make AWF a beneficiary of his mutual funds. Losing Africa’s magnificent animals, he says, would be “an unthinkable tragedy.” His gift will ensure we can continue to protect Africa's most vulnerable animals for generations to come.
