Fairport Baptist Homes Foundation
Caring. It’s the single word central to everything everyone at Fairport Baptist Homes is. And does. Providing a uniquely personal, individualized level of care, for seniors and their families. Maintaining this level of care and the resources needed for future growth and stability is the Foundation’s mission. We serve as the central fundraising arm of Fairport Baptist Homes.
Our fundraising efforts help us continue to aid thousands of area seniors through programs like Senior Options for Independence, Rehabilitation, Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living and Senior Housing.
Your gift helps offset the shortfall between government and insurance reimbursements to Fairport Baptist Homes and the actual cost of care, both on our campus and in the community. Public funding for health care continues to decline annually, in spite of escalating expenditures. As a non-profit, mission-based organization, Fairport Baptist Homes remains committed to serving the underserved in our community, subsidizing the cost of their care if necessary, in part through charitable contributions.
Your gift enriches and enhances the Fairport Baptist Homes community for years to come. The Foundation invests your funds carefully, building a healthy endowment and using investment income to provide a reliable stream of financial resources, enabling Fairport Baptist Homes to continue to meet the current and future needs of our seniors.
Your gift to the Foundation combines with others to earn more than it might if invested separately.
It’s amazing what your gifts have accomplished!
Funding for Caring Connections. A $2,000 grant was made to the Caring Connections fund which is available to help staff members in times of need. Staff members often ask as a last resort when they have a desperate need, such as money for utility bills, diapers, or a Christmas gift for their child. A donor also gave $2,000 for this fund, making a total of $4,000 available.
Hospice Education Program. In an effort to give our staff the tools to handle the hard situations they are placed in as a caregiver in a nursing home, this 6 week program, open to all staff, will help aid in working with the residents and their families as residents near their time of death. This $5,000 grant will get this program running, and allow it to continue as needed.
Piano for the Chapel. $10,426 has been granted for the purchase of a new grand piano for the chapel. This will be used and enjoyed by many, including residents, families, staff and community members.
Tables and Chairs. A $29,892 grant from the Foundation will allow final touches of household renovations to take place. New tables and chairs will be put in all of the households.
Monthly Allocations Program. The Foundation is awarding $6,000 for a year long program run by a committee of staff members. Staff, families and residents are all able to make grant requests up to $500 for anything they see as a need at FBH. The committee will meet monthly to make grants all year.
EZ Stands. The Foundation is awarding $3,000 for the purchase of 4 EZ-Stands. This equipment helps staff move residents around more easily without needing 2 staff members for each assist.
Vital Sign Machines. The Foundation is awarding $5,640 for the purchase of 3 machines. These are stands that will hold equipment and iPads and are wheeled around from room to room to take vital signs of our residents. Having this equipment will allow medical information to be instantly put into a resident’s electronic medical records.
Church Transportation Program. The Foundation is awarding $2,500 to fund six months of this new SOFI program that will give community members rides to Sunday services if they are unable to drive themselves.
Vectro Neo PT/OT Machine. The Foundation will grant $8,000 to purchase this piece of equipment that will be used in our therapy department. The use of this machine is also reimburseable by insurance, so it will help increase revenue in that department.
