Gifts of Farmland
 The Passavant Foundation is the owner or trust beneficiary of over 4,000 acres of farmland. The Foundation shares 423 acres with four local institutions: Berea Church, Bob Freesen YMCA, Hebron Cemetery and Illinois College.

The Passavant Farms are managed by professional farm managers with oversight by the Passavant Foundation Farm Advisory Committee. Annual income from the Passavant Farms is directed by the donors for patient financial assistance, nurse scholarships and for “Greatest Need.”

The Foundation’s philosophy is to retain and operate productive farmland. Stewardship of the land is overseen by the Passavant Farm Advisory Committee, a group of hospital board directors and local farmers. The committee works closely with farm managers and farm operators to ensure best land management practices.

Local Use
All donations made to Passavant Area Hospital Foundation are used for our community hospital and the families served in our seven-county service area. All gifts benefit the local community. For more information on the many ways to make a charitable gift, contact Pam Martin, 217.479.5575.

New Start Date for Walking for Wellness

Posted on: September 21, 2017

Walking for Wellness at the Jacksonville High School Bowl returns for another season of exercise and fellowship Monday, Oct. 2. The Walking for Wellness program provides a safe place in which to get walking exercise when weather conditions make walking outside unpleasant or dangerous. The program is open 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day Jacksonville School District 117 is in session. The program is closed during school holidays (including Thanksgiving and Christmas vacation) and any day school is not in session. On average, 75 people walk at the JHS Bowl each day the program is open—resulting in about 6,400 “encounters” with community members during the five months each year that Walking for Wellness is in session. Walking for Wellness is also offered year-round at First Christian Church, 2106 S. Main, in South Jacksonville. The church is open to walkers Monday-Friday 12:30 to 3 p.m. Walkers there should use the south entrance. There is no cost to participate in Walking for Wellness. Registration is not required. For additional details on Walking for Wellness, please call Passavant’s Marketing and Communications Department, 245-9541, extension 3129.
