Ways to Give to Support Bayley
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, missalettes, 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 Society
The Society offers a unique way to honor any living or deceased loved one(s). Membership is open to all who wish to be enshrined in the Society and remain connected to Bayley in the future.
An annual Mass and reception for all Society members is held at Bayley in September. Additionally, another Mass is celebrated once throughout the year in tribute to the honoree. Families and friends of the honorees will be invited to both events.
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.
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
- Adult Day
