donateFunding for Bampa’s House comes 100% from the generosity of others – through monetary and in-kind private donations, corporate sponsorship, memorials, grants, and our own fundraising events. Bampa’s House will not charge the residents or their families and does not receive any health care reimbursement through insurance or Medicare/Medicaid. All donations in any amount are truly appreciated!

We are pleased to announce that we have received approval for our 501c3 status! What does that mean? We can now receive donations directly from our supporters instead of taking donations through our partners at the Corning Lions Club Foundation. As you know, we are partnering with the Corning Lions Club to establish the comfort care home in the Corning area, and to this point, they have taken donations in our name so that donations could be tax-deductible. Now that we have our own 501c3 status, tax-deductible donations may be made directly to us. We will continue our partnership with the Corning Lions Club Foundation as we work towards building Bampa’s House, and we appreciate their support in our cause!

Tax-deductible donations may be made by mailing a check payable to:

Bampa’s House

PO Box 965

Corning, NY 14830

or if you would prefer, you can donate online.
