How to Best Leave an IRA to Charity [0.16]

Some of the charities are big and some are small churches or 501(c)(3)s. It would make sense to fund the charities' shares with the retirement benefit asset (the IRA) because the charities will pay no income tax on the IRA proceeds, whereas if the individuals' shares are funded with IRA assets their net inheritance will be reduced by income taxes. The client dies and then the charities find out, but the IRA provider won't simply issue the charities a check upon presentation of proper identification and Form W-9.
