"Our benefactors: where would we be without them?"
–Saint Jeanne Jugan

 

 

Saints Mary and Joseph Home needs your help!

The Little Sisters of the Poor trust in God’s Providence and the goodness of others to provide for the needs of our Residents. As you can imagine, the day-to-day cost of operating a Home for over 100 Residents can be quite expensive—in fact, it far exceeds the income received from the Residents’ pensions, Social Security and Medicaid. We rely on charity to help pay the expenses. We have been blessed by the generosity of our friends and benefactors in Northeast Ohio since 1870. Won’t you be part of this tradition of generosity?

Ways to donate:

  • Mail a check payable to:

Good News! The Charitable IRA Rollover Is Back!

As of January 2, 2013, legislation extended the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 to allow individual retirement account (IRA)  owners ages 70½ or older to directly transfer up to $100,000 per year, tax free, to charity.

The new law extends the charitable rollover for this year. All gifts must be made on or before December 31, 2013.

You may make a charitable IRA rollover gift if:

  • You are age 70½ on or before December 31, 2013
  • You transfer funds directly from a traditional IRA or Roth IRA, and your total of IRA gifts for a given tax year is $100,000 or less
  • You transfer the gift outright—on or before year's end—to a public charity, which includes the Little Sisters of the Poor

How to make a charitable IRA rollover gift to Little Sisters of the Poor:

  • Notify the Little Sisters of your plans by calling the Development Office at  (216) 378-4739 or by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • Contact your IRA custodian to authorize your donation.
