Mission Advancement

Father Baker had a vision and belief in people like you who supported his "City of Charity." More than160 years later, Our Lady of Victory Homes of Charity continues to secure support from our friends and benefactors to fund programs and services provided to those in need here in Western New York.

On an annual basis, more than 3,600 children, teens, the developmentally disabled and families receive specialized services including behavioral health care. This would not be possible without funding from individuals like you.

Our Mission Advancement staff meet with donors from all walks of life who share with us their reason for support. At times there is a family connection; someone received services from Baker Victory Services, or were adopted from the former Infant Home. And most often our donors give out of a belief in caring for those less fortunate.

There are several ways to support our organization. In addition to a gift of cash, many donors find planned giving to be a beneficial way of providing a larger gift in support of our mission to care for children and families in need. Of the various vehicles available, here are just a few of the more popular ways to give:

  • Stock Donations
  • Bequests
  • Charitable Trusts
  • Donation of Property
  • Charitable Gift Annuities

If you would like to learn more about how to make a planned gift in support of the children, adults, and families in our care, we would be happy to speak with you. Please call us at 716-828-9610 or 1-800-525-4906, or contact us online here.

We'll provide you with whatever information you need to find the method or giving that works best for you. We are always happy to be of assistance and we look forward to hearing from you!
