St. Ann’s Community Raises $14.3 Million

Donors make possible a landmark renovation of St. Ann’s Home

In a remarkable show of support for the elders of St. Ann’s Community, generous donors contributed a total of $14.3 million to St. Ann’s For All They’ve Given campaign.

The five-year campaign, which ended Dec. 31, is making possible a landmark renovation of St. Ann’s Home in Irondequoit.

“Through their generous support, our donors have joined us in honoring our elders for all they’ve given to our community and our lives,” said Michael E. McRae, President and CEO of St. Ann’s Community. “This campaign allows us to say thank you through a transformative capital project that provides them the beautiful, modern living spaces and personalized care they want and deserve. It enables our staff to continue caring for our elders in the best way possible while keeping St. Ann’s at the leading edge of senior care in Rochester.”

The project, totaling nearly $40 million, represents the first major renovation to St. Ann’s Home since 2001.

“We are so grateful to our donors for helping usher in this new era for St. Ann’s,” said Jodi L. Revill, vice president and chief development officer, St. Ann’s Foundation. “Our tradition of service to Rochester’s elders dates back nearly 150 years. Thanks to our For All They’ve Given campaign, we’re ready to serve both our current elders and those to come with living space as warm and comfortable as the homes they’ve known all their lives.”

Renovation of St. Ann’s Home

Built in 1963, St. Ann’s Home has undergone a total makeover in both structure and design. The result is a warmer, more modern living space that creates a closer-knit community among elders and their care teams.

The renovation project will be fully completed in 2022.

Results include:
• Upgraded infrastructure including new heating/ventilation/air conditioning systems and technology modernization and enhancements through experts like AirMax Heating & Air
• A new household model reflecting the preference of elders and their families for a more intimate delivery of care
• Two households of 15 residents per floor with a shared kitchen and increased common space with modern décor and furnishings
• A dedicated care team for each household, creating a feeling of connectedness and stability supported by the new living space
• Greater social and therapeutic options for elders right on their floors.
