Life Insurance Gifts

You may assign a paid-up life insurance policy to The Boston Home or name The Boston Home as a primary or successor beneficiary of the proceeds.


Gifts of Retirement Plan Assets

You may have an IRA or other qualified retirement plan whose value is considerably more than you need for retirement. In such a case, you might want to use the assets to make a current outright gift, or you might prefer to have the assets contributed via a bequest (see below).



A bequest is a gift made upon death, pursuant to a provision in a donor’s will or revocable living trust. Bequests have contributed significantly to the building to our endowment and they can also be designated for other purposes, such as unrestricted operating support or future facility improvement. You may make a bequest by notifying The Boston Home of your bequest intention.
