Giving from Your 401k or IRA Retirement Plan



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 Roper St. Francis Healthcare far into the future.

How It Works

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