Foundation:

WHO. WHAT. WHY. GIVING OPPORUNITIES.

WHO IS THE BAY BLUFFS FOUNDATION?

Founded in 2006, the Bay Bluffs Foundation is a 501 ( C ) 3, non-profit organization created as a vehicle for donors to support special programs and services of the nursing facility.

WHAT DOES THE FOUNDATION DO?

Raise money to support capital needs or special projects and programs that enhance the quality of life of residents at Bay Bluffs, the Emmet County Medical Care Facility. Foundation contributions are used to support programs and services not supported by traditional reimbursement.

WHY IS THE FOUNDATION WORK IMPORTANT?

Bay Bluffs opened its doors to Emmet County residents in 1966 with the purpose of providing skilled nursing care for all, without regard to the ability to pay or payer source. With no operating millage, the Foundation is a critical component of the long-term viability of Bay Bluffs for future generations.

HOW CAN I HELP?

The Bay Bluffs Foundation provides giving opportunities for memorial or tribute gifts, grants, donor designated one-time or multi-year gifts.
