The Baptist Care Fund

The Commitment to Serve

 The Baptist Care Fund is dedicated to caring for the frail elderly and their families throughout the community which we service known as the Capital Region of New York State. We fund, support and implement programs related to education, research and innovation for geriatric care, advocacy for the aged along with special health services and programs for persons of all ages.

The Dreams Can Come True Program, funded by the Baptist Care Fund, grants special wishes to residents. Learn more about this wonderful program here.

Matching Gifts provide a way to make the most of your donation. Many companies offer matching gift programs and many provide this benefit to employees, spouses, partners, and retired employees. Most corporate matching gifts are unrestricted and substantially increase the value of your individual gift. Please contact your company’s Human Resources office for more information.
