How your gift makes a difference…

Passavant Memorial Homes is committed to developing new support systems for individuals with intellectual disabilities and behavioral health needs.  To do so, Passavant continues to explore ways to fund these services.  County and State governments do provide some of the money, but additional funds are necessary to develop new systems.

Through the years, the generosity of Passavant supporters has established the Shoup Greenhouse, and the Alvin J. Barrett Memorial Courtyard, just to name two Rochester campus landmarks.  As well as these examples, numerous plaques are above doorways in the buildings, reminding us of who also cared about the continuation of Passavant’s mission.

By continuing to read on, you will find a type of financial support that you may be comfortable providing to the Foundation to ensure the continuation of Passavant’s caring support.  Your gift would be appreciated by so many, in so many ways.

Planned Giving

Estate Planning – through a will or other estate planning documents, you can provide that some of your assets will be given to Passavant at the time of your death.

Gifts from a Qualified Retirement Plan – Your IRA, 401K, 403B, or other plans, may be a great way for making a gift.

Life Income Agreements – charitable gift annuities, deferred payment charitable gift annuities, or charitable remainder trusts may be appropriate vehicles.

Life Insurance – all, or part of a death benefit can be designated for Passavant.


Pledges are a practical way to be able to make a larger gift over a longer period of time.  The Foundation will gladly work with you to enable this type of transaction.

Matching Gifts

In many cases today, employers, or other organizations have a “Matching Gift” program through which they make donations to worthy charitable causes.  Ask about such programs at your workplace, or in social, civic or fraternal organizations to which you belong.  Often, up to a certain dollar amount, your personal gift will be matched, thus increasing your gift to Passavant.


Memorial gifts, given at the time of the death of a loved one, can make all the difference in this world in the life of an individual living with a disability.
