Passionate about supporting Saint Mary's College of California with our mission even after your lifetime? It's not only possible, it's easy to do with a beneficiary designation. Just name Saint Mary's as a beneficiary to receive assets such as retirement plans and life insurance policies after you're gone. You simply fill out a form that is entirely separate from your will—which makes this approach an easy way to give.

Not only is it an easy way to give, but it's also flexible—you aren't locked into the choices you make today. You can review and adjust beneficiary designations anytime you want.

Peter and Sally Kelly"Estate planning is a pain in the neck," says Saint Mary's alumnus Peter Kelly. "We have put it off, and it was time to update our plans.

Peter is a former chairman of Saint Mary's Board of Trustees, who currently sits on the Board's Executive Committee.
