As one can imagine the day to day cost of operating a large facility and providing for the elderly poor who have outlived their resources can be quite costly. Caring for the elderly poor in a manner respectful of their dignity far exceeds the income received from the Residents’ pensions, Social Security, Medicaid or Medicare. Reimbursements from these sources cover less than half of the actual annual cost of care. To cover this constant deficit, we rely on your generosity and donation. Our ministry is made possible through benefactors who share our belief in assisting those less fortunate. We pray that you will join our family of benefactors and share the joy of caring for the needy aged.

IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution
If you are older than 70 ½ and have an IRA, there is a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) that you have to withdraw each year.
Under current tax law, you may get a very attractive tax break if you make a donation directly to the Little Sisters of the Poor as part of that RMD. If the donation is made directly from your IRA to a qualified charity such as the Little Sisters, it will be excluded from your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) when it’s time to file your next tax return.
The specific impact depends on your personal income tax circumstances, and should be reviewed with your tax advisor. To learn how to make the donation otherwise known as Qualified Charitable Distribution in compliance with the tax code, consult the custodian of your IRA. To ensure your gift is directed here, please use our IRS name Little Sisters of the Poor of the State of Pennsylvania (EIN 25-0974310) at 1028 Benton Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA, 15212.
This tax-advantaged strategy is available to anyone who is 70 ½ or older and must take a required minimum distribution.
