What is it?
Grains for Health is a program that gives farmers the opportunity to donate 100 bushels of grain, or an amount of their choice,  to the Passavant Area Hospital Foundation. Gifts of grain support Passavant Area Hospital’s Emergency Department and provide farm safety programs.

How does it work?

Farmers transfer ownership of grain directly to the Foundation. Then, the Foundation works with the local grain dealer to sell the grain.  Because the grain is donated, the farmer can realize significant tax savings.

Why should I participate?
Passavant Hospital has been a part of our farm community since its early beginnings in 1875, and the hospital is built on farmland donated by Charles Rowe in 1928. The grain giving program is a way for the agricultural community to provide financial support that strengthens Passavant Hospital’s ability to provide quality healthcare for farm families and their employees, neighbors and friends.

How do I participate?
If you would like to participate, please complete the form below and return it to Foundation Office, Passavant Area Hospital, 1600 West Walnut, Jacksonville, IL 62650. The Elevator you use will be contacted to let them know of your participation.

The names of all participants in the Grains for Health program are recognized on a plaque in the hospital’s Main Lobby.
