IRA Rollover Designations

Are You or Your Spouse at Least 70 ½ Years Old?

If so, you are able to use your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to make a gift to The Home for Little Wanderers.

By making an IRA charitable rollover you can:

  • Satisfy your required minimum distribution.
  • Avoid federal and, in many cases, state income taxes.
  • Provide up to $100,000 of support for the kids in-need, and their programs, at The Home.


To make a gift:

  • Contact your IRA administrator to request that a charitable distribution be transferred to The Home.
  • Instruct your IRA administrator to write your name on the memo line of the check and specify that the gift is an IRA charitable distribution.
  • Send your check to: The Home for Little Wanderers, 10 Guest Street, Boston, MA 02135
