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!
