    Fairport Baptist Homes Foundation

    The Fairport Baptist Homes Foundation serves as the central fundraising arm of Fairport Baptist Homes, maintaining resources needed for future growth and stability. All gifts are directed to the Foundation, established in 1998, and are used in a fiscally responsible manner to meet the changing needs of our senior population. These ongoing needs can be met only in partnership with philanthropic people in our community who care about the welfare of seniors.

    Why Give?

    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 in 2013 alone.

    Upgrades to Sound System in Chapel. A $3,000 grant from the Foundation will enhance the sound system in the chapel and allow FBH chaplains to purchase a laptop, projector and speakers to be used during worship services, bible study and funerals/memorial services.  More than 100 residents and their families will benefit from these upgrades every week.
    Upgrades to Call System for Assisted Living. Residents in our Assisted Living Community will now have a safer and more efficient way to call for help thanks to a $12,500 grant from the Foundation.  In addition to the current pull-cord alert system in resident bedrooms and bathrooms, a new pendant system will mean that residents can call staff for help even when traveling to other areas of the building or outside on FBH grounds.
    Staff Education Department. A new staff education suite will be opening at Fairport Baptist Homes thanks to support from the Foundation.  Equipment that will be purchased with an $11,000 grant will allow for a variety of programs including CPR certification and first-aid and food safety courses.  Employee orientation, retention and resident quality of life and safety are all expected to benefit from an improved education department.
    Backyard Adventures. Seniors in the Perinton area will have more opportunities for socialization and recreation by participating in Backyard Adventures.  Monthly trips to destinations such as the Memorial Art Gallery and George Eastman House will be offered.  A grant of $2,000 from the Foundation will allow Senior Options for Independence (SOFI) to bring back this popular program by hiring a part-time coordinator/facilitator/driver.  Funds will also help offset transportation costs.
