Ways to Give to Support Bayley

Annual Support

Bayley welcomes gifts of all sizes to support the Bayley Annual Fund.  Gifts to this program help meet the increasing and changing needs of residents of Bayley and members of the Bayley Adult Day Program. Donations designated for the general fund are unrestricted. The Board of Directors is free to allocate these donations to be used where the need is greatest.

Tribute and Memorial Gift Program

Gifts to this program enable you to honor or memorialize family and friends throughout the year.  A personal acknowledgement letter is sent to the family or individual being honored, without reference to the size of the gift. 

Pastoral Care Chapel Fund

This fund provides support for operational expenses for the Pastoral Care Department.  Stipends for clergy, musicians, wine, hosts, seasonal flowers, misalettes, and upkeep for audio visual services and miscellaneous materials are needed to provide for the many spiritual programs and services to enhance this ministry and mission at Bayley. 

Mother Margaret George Honor Society 

The Society offers a unique way to honor living loved ones or deceased individuals who resided at Bayley, were members of Bayley Adult Day Program or whose lives had been touched by the caring outreach of Bayley.

An annual Mass and reception for all Society members is held at Bayley in September. The Mass is celebrated by one of the Bishops of Cincinnati. Society memberships are available for a minimum contribution of $5,000. Donations may be made as gifts of cash, stock, life insurance and or investment assets.

Contact Steven Breidenich at 513-347-5735 or steven.breidenich@bayleylife.org for information on any of these funds.

Bayley Endowment Fund

This fund helps residents of Bayley and members of Bayley Adult Day program who outlive their resources.  Over 60% of Bayley residents receive assistance. The combined shortfall between the annual expenses of these two programs and government funding is $1.2. million.  It has always been a hallmark of Bayley that no resident is ever asked to leave due to inability to pay.  Residents who outlive their resources  continue to receive our love and support.  Our Bayley Adult Day members continue to enjoy our services, live in the community and remain independent because of our commitment to them and their families.

Gifts to the Endowment Fund may be designated for:

  • Health Services, Residential Care
  • Adult Day
  • Pastoral Care
  • Assisted Living
